Wow! We just put together our statistics on absences, truancies and referrals
on freshmen for the first semester of this year to compare to last year.
Absences are down 18%, truancies down 42% and the biggie, referrals down 78%
for freshmen this year from last year. And we have the biggest class ever
(700). We are in the second year of using the "Link Crew" program. It starts
with Freshmen Orientation. Hooking up a successful Junior or Senior with 10
freshmen to mentor for the year. It has really made a huge difference on our
campus. For those of you complaining of rude students and behavior problems,
look into implementing the program on your campus. It is well worth it in ADA
alone!
As an art teacher of primarily freshmen, it has made everyday so much easier.
It is the best thing I have ever signed up for on my campus.
