The vision of Orchard View Alternative High School is to create a supportive, academic environment where students value hard work, and individual goals are achieved. Orchard View students learn to make positive choices that enable them to take an active role in their education and future career.
Of course one of the positive choices we expect them to make is their choice to come to school each and every day. Student attendance is taken extremely seriously at Orchard View Alternative High School. We recognize the direct correlation between daily attendance and its significant impact on student learning. We support a diverse group of learners who all have a unique story to tell. Every student has chosen to come to OV for the same reason: to have a chance to become a successful high school graduate.
Here are some of the attendance intervention strategies that we typically implement in our school:
The Anonymous Alerts® reporting app was created to help students, parents or community members choose a school official to contact, type of incident to report, school building and/or a specific location, set a priority level of normal or high and upload a photo, screenshot or video related to the incident. This reporting system is meant to allow for anonymous reporting but still provides for District and Building Administrators to respond (via the app) to the person who submitted a tip to the District.
If you plan on submitting an alert anonymously please be sure to check the "message center" in the application itself to see any responses to your tip, or requests from District Officials for additional information.
The purpose of the app is for members of our school and community to report suspicious activity, bullying or student-related concerns to a school administrator. For all other reports, please contact your child's school directly. If you feel the need to keep this submission anonymous that is OK, we completely respect your right to privacy and appreciate you making us aware.
