Self Check

In which areas is Sophia signaling High Risk?

Good choice! Sophia is signaling High Risk in attendance, with 5 days absent and 11 tardies this month. Attendance would be a good area to focus on with Sophia.

Sophia received three detentions this month, which does not qualify as High Risk.

Good thought: Sophia has three Fs, which signals High Risk. She tells you she is missing assignments from days she missed school or was tardy.
