Monrovia School Attendance Rate Slipped, But is Recovering

Until last year, Monrovia schools were successful at increasing the percentage of students who show up for school - ever since that became a district priority in 2006-07. Since the district's income from the state is based on attendance, that translates directly into more money.
But in 2009-10 attendance slipped, perhaps because of a flu outbreak. Fortunately, as you can see from the chart, it appears 2010-11 attendance will be up again. This report ( will be presented at the next school board meeting, Wednesday, March 9, 7:30 p.m. at the district offices.
