The Siskiyou Union High School District is committed to providing all students with an engaging and enjoyable educational experience so they can prepare for their future career and college experiences. Student attendance matters. Last year over 20% of our students were Chronically absent, meaning they missed more than 10% or 16 days of school. As a school community, we must improve this so our call to action is to ensure all students work to achieve an absenteeism rate of less than 5% or 8 days per school year. We need to work together to accomplish this for our students. Please start by reviewing the following documents that outline the importance of attendance and how we can work to achieve this important goal for our students.
