Attendance & Residency Coordinator
Community & Alumni
The Euclid Schools, along with many partners, is committed to increasing student attendance, engagement and academic achievement. We know that student success and achievement starts with attendance and engaged learning. The District's collective effort encompasses the state's strategic priorities along with the assistance of experts and programs like the Cleveland Browns Stay in the Game! Network and Harvard's Proving Ground. Attendance is a critical concern: students need to be present to engage with learning as student attendance directly impacts student achievement and graduation. Chronic absenteeism, defined as students missing 10% or more of school hours due to absence of any reason, can lead to younger students struggling with learning to read by third grade, decreased achievement in middle school and difficulty graduating high school.
