What is it?
The Truancy Tracker website was created at the request of the District Truancy Officer. The purpose is to provide a running list of students who are in need of attendance supports which can be reviewed at a school-by-school or district level. Data entry fields are provided to record the dates various supports and/or interventions were implemented. In addition there are areas to record comments or additional notes.
You need a truancy tracker account to log in to the website. If you are an authorized user (you are a principal, or your principal has assigned you data entry tasks) and are experiencing difficulty logging in, please firstname.lastname@example.org. You account setup and building assignment will be verified and you will be provided additional assistance.
