Inglewood Unified Launches Attendance Campaign:
Every Student. Every Day.
Student attendance is a top priority in Inglewood Unified School District this school year. We believe academic success begins with every student attending school every day. Throughout the year, students will be recognized for Excellent and Improved attendance. Share your attendance successes and celebrations using #EveryStudentEveryDay
Why Attendance Is Important
Research shows that:
- For every one day missed, it takes a child three or more days to catch up.
- Children who are chronically absent in preschool, kindergarten, and first grade are much less likely to read at grade level by third grade.
- Students who cannot read at grade level by the end of third grade are four times more likely than proficient readers to drop out of high school.
What is Excellent Attendance?
To maintain Excellent Attendance (96% or more), students must have less than 7 absences the entire school year.
Severely Chronically Absent
Less than 87%
|87% - 90%||91% - 95%||96% - 99%||100%|
24 or more absences
|18 - 23 absences||8 - 17 absences||1-7 absences||0 absences|

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (McKinney-Vento Act) (42 U.S.C. § 11431-11435) is federal legislation that ensures the educational rights and protections of children and youths experiencing homelessness. It requires all local educational agencies (LEAs) to ensure that homeless students have access to the same free, appropriate public education, including public preschools, as provided to other children and youths. The McKinney-Vento Act defines LEAs as public school districts, direct-funded and locally funded charter schools, and county offices of education. The McKinney-Vento Act also authorizes the funding for the federal Education for Homeless Children and Youths Program.
Home Hospital Services
Any student with a temporary, short-term disability that makes attendance in regular school or an alternative education program impossible or inadvisable must receive individual instruction provided by the student's school district (Education Code 48206.3 [b]). Students may be recommended for Home Hospital Services by the school principal if they have a medical condition or diagnosis that prevents them from attending school. The student must have a medical letter of recommendation from a licensed physician to support the recommendation for Home Hospital Services. The school counselor will complete the Home Hospital Referral Form and submit it to the Student Support Services / Child Welfare and Attendance Office. If approved by the Director of Student Support Services / Child Welfare and Attendance, the student will be assigned to a Home Hospital teacher for a maximum of 5 hours of instruction per week at home, hospital or district facility. Home Hospital Services will be provided per recommendation of a medical physician.
