Abstract

Attendance is the concept of people, individually or as a group, appearing at a location


for a previously scheduled event. Measuring attendance is a significant concern for many
organizations, which can use such information to gauge the effective ness of their efforts and to
plan for future efforts.
The factors that affect the attendance of students is school factors, family factors, and
individual factors. The researchers make a questionnaire to know the cause of absenteeism in
school. The researchers conduct the survey to Grade 12 students to know the factors affecting
the attendance of grade 12 students. The school should strive to have up to data learning
facilities like libraries as well as sporting facilities to make students retention so that it will not
cause absenteeism that affect the attendance of grade 12 students. Likewise it aimed to
determine how school factors, family factors and individual factors, affects the attendance of
grade 12 San Rafael National High School Senior High School students.
The researchers made a letter to the teacher in any strands in grade 12 students. The
researchers used the tally method to get the percentage of the factors that affecting the
attendance of the Grade 12 SRNHS Senior High School students.

Background of the Study

Academic class attendance is a student obligation. UNCSA expects all students to

regularly and punctually attend all classes in which they are enrolled. Each academic teacher

submits a daily report of attendance, and the official attendance record for each student is kept

in the High School Academic Program office. If a student has an excused absence from a class,

the teacher will permit the student to make up the work missed. It is the student’s responsibility

to arrange for make-up work in consultation with the teacher within two days of the student’s

return to school if the excused absence was unplanned. Make-up work for planned absences

that are excused ahead of the event should be arranged with teachers at least 24 hours before

the student leaves campus (Creemers P. M. ,2002).

The researchers choose this study to know the factor affecting the attendance of

Grade 12 SRNHS Senior High School students because attendance is the most important in

school academic. There is scant reference to attendance in planning education literature. This

is surprisingbecause planning is a discipline which emphasizes the development of skills as

wellas knowledge (QAA, 2008). Generic skills identified as important for a planning graduate

include a number that can only be developed through face-to-face contactwith staff and fellow

students, for example presentation skills, critical reflection, working in groups, evaluation of

others’ opinions and values, leadership and networking skills, and contact with professionals.

Thus in order to know the factors affecting the attendance of Grade 12 San Rafael

National High School Senior High School Students, this study was conducted.

Chapter 2
Review of related literature

This chapter on the Review of Related Literature is divided into two parts: (1) Facts about

Absenteeism, (2) Factors of Absenteeism in School.

Facts about School Attendance


The research and analysis completed for this study focuses on one variable and its

relationship to student achievement: school wide student attendance. It is a variable that is

often overlooked or taken for granted as an interesting but meaningless statistic, however, the

positive impact of good school attendance on academic achievement may be greater than

historically thought (Johnston, 2000, Lamdin, 1996). Coutts (1998) suggests student attendance

should be charted and monitored weekly, since high attendance rates are indicators of effective

schools.

Encouraging regular school attendance is one of the most powerful ways you can

prepare your child for success—both in school and in life. When you make school attendance a

priority, you help your child get better grades, develop healthy life habits, avoid dangerous

behavior and have a better chance of graduating from high school. Every day a student is

absent is a lost opportunity for learning. Too many absences not only can affect achievement

for the absent student but also can disrupt learning for the entire class. As a parent, you can
SAN RAFAEL NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL
GENERAL ACADEMIC STRAND
SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL DEPARTMENT
SAN RAFAEL, ILOILO

identify the reasons why your child is absent from school and help them to overcome these

challenges (Coutts, 2008).

There is scant reference to attendance in planning education literature. This is

Surprising because planning is a discipline which emphasizes the development of skills

As well as knowledge (QAA, 2008). Generic skills identified as important for a planning

Graduate include a number that can only be developed through face-to-face contact.

Alaska set its target at 85 percent attendance, explaining that “attendance below this level

represents too much school missed to learn the reading, writing, and mathematics standards at

proficient level” (U.S. Department of Education, 2003).Although the AYP indicator used for high

schools is based on student dropout rates, rather than attendance, attendance is, of course,

just as important for high school students as it is for younger children. Statistics show that

absenteeism due to reasons other than illness and cutting individual classes increases with each

grade level, starting in the eighth grade (National Center for Education Statistics, 2002).

The concept of engagement with school and learning is another important aspect of

educational research linked to attendance. The way attendance and a student’s

affective/emotional, behavioral and cognitive experiences are bound up together. Improving

outcomes for students in these three spheres – affective/emotional, behavioral and cognitive –

can contribute positively to the quantity and quality of students’ school attendance (Lawson and

Lawson, 2013).In one study (Gottfried, 2010), controlling for student, classroom, school, and
SAN RAFAEL NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL

neighborhood characteristics, as well as past student performance, he found that the number of

days the student was present was positively related to both grade point average and

Regular school attendance is a key contributor toward student success. Lack of

attendance by its very nature removes the student from time on learning that is essential for

academic success (Estridge, 2009). The reality is an absence, whether it is excused or not,

means that a child is not in benefiting from educational opportunities on that day. Smith (2011)

stresses that school districts have to work in the community and with families to promote public

awareness and understanding of the problem, build high expectations and develop a culture of

daily school attendance and educational attainment.

Mulvany (1989) explains that particularly in large urban high schools, lack of attendance

has become acceptable for a particular proportion of students. Although procedures dealing

with absenteeism are clearly specified, school staff sometimes respond in an ad hoc way, doing

what they believe is right in a certain situation, doing what time allows them to do, or in

response to whether they believe the student “deserves” another chance. Students under the

age of sixteen may have a chance of receiving support or interventions from outside community

agencies, however there are few supports for a student over the age of sixteen who stops

coming to school. If a student has a large number of conduct cards for poor behavior and

criminal charges, in addition to poor attendance, they may be referred to one of the district’s

alternative schools, which is often their only chance at graduating from high school because of

the smaller setting that is designed to address the multiple needs of at-risk students.

School Factor

Schools need especially good ventilation because children breathe a greater volume of

air in proportion to their body weight than adults do (Kennedy 2001, McGovern 1998, Moore

1998) and because schools have much less floor space per person than found in most office

buildings (Crawford 1998). But because of the high costs of conditioning the ventilation air in

schools to comfortable temperatures before it is circulated, the designers and operators of

school buildings can be the unwitting architects of learning spaces that impair learning and

health by offering inadequate ventilation—whether this results from economic measures,

ignorance, neglect, poor maintenance, or some combination of these factors.

Krashen (2005) concluded that students whose parents are educated score higher on

standardized tests than those whose parents were not educated. Educated parents can better

communicate with their children regarding the school work, activities and the information being

taught at school.

A school that has adequate instructional materials is likely to post better quality grades

than a school which has poor quality physical resources. A school with inadequate classrooms

will be forced to accommodate more students than recommended. This will exert a lot of
SAN RAFAEL NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL
GENERAL ACADEMIC STRAND
SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL DEPARTMENT
SAN RAFAEL, ILOILO

pressure on resources such as teachers who may compromise their methodology as part of

adaptive mechanism (Nafukho, 1991; Pscharapolous & Woodhall, 1985).

The study was guided by the Effective Schools Model by Lezotte (2010), which argues

that an effective school is a school that can, in measured student achievement terms,

demonstrate the joint presence of quality and equity.

According to Lezotte (2010), strong instructional leaders are proactive and seek help in

building team leadership and a culture conducive to learning and professional growth. In the

effective school, the principal and others act as instructional leaders and effectively and

persistently communicate and model the mission of the school to staff, parents, and students.

Sullivan and Glanz‟s (2000) assertion that a prime task of school leaders is to exercise

instructional leadership of the kind that results in a shared vision of the directions to be pursued

by the school, and to manage change in ways that ensure that the school is successful in

realizing the vision.

Murphy & Louis (1998) define an effective school as the school with an atmosphere

which motivates educators and learners to improve the school and improve themselves.

Effective schools are those schools which are in constant state of dissatisfaction with their

outcomes (Weller, 1999).

According to Sun, Creemers and de Jong (2007), studies of school effectiveness have

two distinctive aims: firstly, to identify factors that are characteristic of effective schools, and

secondly, to identify differences between education outcomes in these schools.

Family Factor

Family factors affecting child development. In a large, geographically. Defined

population of children a number of family factors in addition to social class, determined by the

father's occupation, were recorded by health visitors and school nurses with routine

responsibility for these children.

Knowing that many of its parents were professionals with heavy commitments

elsewhere, but also with a strong commitment to their children’s education, the school devised

a means by which it could make the most of the parents’ skills and reward them at the same

time by giving them a more direct role in their children’s education. This was the basis for a

longstanding program of parent involvement, underpinned by a culture of openness to parents.

By skilling up the parents in the way maths is taught these days, coupled with encouraging

parents to teach their children in ways they themselves had learnt maths, the school presented

parents with an enticing mixture of respect for their own learning and a chance to learn

something new, while at the same time fulfilling their desire to give their children the best start

in life.

Houtenville and Conway (2008) found that parental effort (the combination of all kinds

of engagement) has a large effect on student achievement compared with school resources

(e.g. per pupil spending on teaching).

Parents can communicate their expectations and educational aspirations by, for

example, discussing subject selection and choices, academic aspirations and post-school

pathways (Pomerantz, Moorman and Litwack 2007). Such communication represents a style of

parenting which is supportive of a child’s academic progress, places value on learning, and

models behaviours appropriate for achievement (Hoover-Dempsey and Sandler 2005).

While the home learning environment remains critical to a child’s education, dialogue

between parents and school needs to occur to keep parents informed about curricula, courses,

school rules, and assessments. Building this kind of communication, parents and teachers can

then work together to support the child in his or her education (Lee and Bowen 2006).

Individual Factor

The individual factors that determine health are factors identified within an individual,
including: attitudes, knowledge, skills, genetics, and personal characteristics. There are a range
of individual factors that determine the health of an individual.

An impaired individual becomes disabled when faced with barriers placed by society that
exclude them from participating in the way they would like (Carrington & MacArthur, 2012;
Ministry of Health, 2001).

How individuals interpret events will affect their expectations, and in turn, affect their
behaviour (Bandura, 1986; Stipek, 2002). Two components of this theory that are important to
this study are personal agency and self-efficacy. The ability for teachers to teach students with
disabilities inclusively and effectively requires high levels of self-efficacy and agency.

Contextual factors such as external and contextual environments, and personal factors
such as cognition, affective and biological events as well as behaviour, all influence teacher
agency (Bandura, 1997). Individuals can be enabled or constrained by their environments.
SAN RAFAEL NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL

Social constructionism takes into account individuals contexts, and their understanding of their
lived reality, so when exploring phenomenon in different schools and with different teachers, a
mixed approach of quantitative and qualitative methodology allows for richer interpretation than
using approach alone (Creswell, 2014).

Motivation for learning and improving individual abilities presents one of the central
components of self-actualization motive, the highest one in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs
(Maslow, 1954).

Students' individual factors may negatively affect school attendance. Research indicates
that absenteeism increases by seniority in high school (Rood, 1989) and most frequently
happens at age 15. Absentee students usually do not feel safe at school. They feel academically
or socially inadequate. They find classes boring and their positive experiences related to school
are less than those who attend school regularly (Clarke, 2008; Corville-Smith, Ryan Adams, &
Dalicandro, 1998; Williams, 2001). Thus, self-esteem, confidence, concentration, self-
management and social skills of these students are low. They feel powerless in the school and
think other students do not respect them (Eastwold, 1989; Wall, 2003; Eastman et al.2007).

According to Reid (2000) and Gentle-Genitty (2008), other results include not wanting to
get up in the morning, receiving strict punishment, sleeping late, not completing homework,
being in a grade that is one above or one below the regular grade level, switching to another
school in the middle or the beginning of the school year, feeling extreme test pressure, feeling
constantly ill, and having siblings who are regularly absent. Participating in fun activities and
socializing with their peers outside of school are also among the reasons (Williams, 2001).
Interestingly, as Clark (2008) indicated, some students are absent since they find courses
difficult and some others are absent because they find the courses monotonous and boring.

Findings

The finding of this descriptive research included the following:

The researcher found out that the main factor effect the absenteeism in San Rafael
National High School is late sleep at night. Based on our survey we found out that 19.85% says
that late sleep at night is the main reason why they absent to school. The researcher found out
that people who sleep late, even if them adequate late exhibit a marked increase in
