Healthy Kids Survey
Each year, BUSD provides an opportunity for parents to take the California Healthy Kids Surveys (CHKS) in order to collect parents’ perceptions of the overall school climate and parent-school involvement opportunities. The results of this survey will be used as a tool to inform our Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) process.
The survey is voluntary and anonymous; however, we highly encourage you to participate in this opportunity. The survey is accessible online through January 31 and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Please click here to access the survey for Ramona Elementary. Thank you for participating in this year's survey. We value your time and input.
Absenteeism in the first month of school can predict poor attendance throughout the school year. Half the students who miss 2-4 days in September go on to miss nearly a month of school. Poor attendance can influence whether children can read proficiently by the end of third grade. By 6th grade, chronic absence becomes a leading indicator that a student will drop out of high school. Research shows that missing 10 percent of school, or about 18 days in most school districts, negatively affects a student’s academic performance. That is just two days a month and that is known as chronic absence. When students improve their attendance rates, they improve their academic prospects and chances for graduating.
