In the ALE application, a Data Table has been created for the specific purpose of monitoring students who meet the following truancy conditions identified by OPSI (referenced on pg. 44 of the Guide to Offering ALE: https://www.k12.wa.us/sites/default/files/public/studentsupport/pubdocs/Guide%20to%20Offering%20Alternative%20Learning%20Experiences%20Final_2021-22.pdf )
- 1 missed weekly contact without valid justification
- 2 consecutive or 3 cumulative missed weekly contacts without valid justification
- 5 consecutive or 6 cumulative missed weekly contacts without valid justification
In addition, a column has been added identifying students with 4 consecutive missed weekly contacts without valid justification as many programs have a practice of exiting students who miss this many consecutive weekly contacts.
The “conditions” are calculated during the nightly migration process and therefore do not update based on weekly contact information that is entered today. Keep in mind that any contact entered today will be reflected in the table following the next successful data migration.
The table is available on both the Secretary and Program Manager Roles, under the Monitor section in the left nav.
By default, only data from student learning plans that have not yet been concluded are displayed, but this can be changed by updating the “Concluded” Column to say “Yes.”
The Columns from left to right include:
Certificated Teacher - This lists the teacher assigned to this Student’s Learning Plan
Grade Level - Student’s current grade level
Total Missed - This column shows the total number of weeks that have missed contact with no valid justification.
Max Consecutive Missed - This column shows the maximum number of consecutive weeks that have missed contact with no valid justification.
Concluded - this column indicates whether the SLP has been concluded and defaults to no.
For the remaining four columns, if the student meets this truancy condition (based on data calculated from the previous day) you will see a yellow triangle icon in the corresponding column
2 Consecutive/3 Cumulative
5 Consecutive/6 Cumulative
Filters are included on each of the column headers to quickly locate students who meet one or more of the conditions.
The data table can be downloaded by using the table action gear and selecting “Download Data”
