I hope this assessment 'focuses down' on the status of heath effects on the school attendance of our elementary students. The sharp rise in SERIOUS missed school days ("chronically absent") in MVWSD, particularly Castro elementary (last year 33.1% category "very high" / state-wide 35.4% for Hispanics) hinders learning. Chronic absence means > 10% of school learning days missed.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
