Principal, Dr. Andrew Page

Superintendent, Dr. Susan Patterson

The Leadership Team at West Elementary School developed an attendance incentive program called Attendance HERO – Here, Every Day, Ready and On Time. The Leadership Team selected four attendance periods of four weeks during the second semester to reward students who did not miss a single minute of any day. Students who met the criteria received two rewards. The first reward was a token and a prize from the Treasure Tower in the Principal’s office. The Treasure Tower contained eight different small rewards in which students could choose. The second reward designed for students who were Attendance HERO’s during a given attendance period received an Attendance HERO t-shirt. Rewarding students during four different periods gave students more opportunities to meet the criteria for the award and allowed students who were out of school sick an additional time period to work for the incentive. Teachers and staff promoted the incentives and the PTA helped promote with parents. West Elementary had great support from stakeholders in promoting the program to students. The Treasure Tower was very popular, and students showed pride as they wore Attendance HERO t-shirts. The program resulted in all grades achieving and an overall 95% attendance rate or higher for 2018-2019.
