Student Absence Reporting Dashboard

Limestone Learning Foundation

Limestone continues to work closely with KFL&A Public Health in monitoring student absences related to illness. A version of this dashboard was posted on our website during the spring of 2022. We are again making the Student Absence Reporting Dashboard available to support our school communities with information about student absences due to illness in Limestone schools. As a result, you may have noticed some changes to the absence codes. Previously there was a code for “COVID-19 related absences” and another code for “other illness or injury”. Moving forward there will be a code for illness, and a code for injury. Absences due to illness will be reported on the dashboard. These changes are being implemented to try to provide the best possible data for student absences, and are based on KFL&A Public Health guidance.

The information presented in this dashboard is provided on a voluntary basis by parents or guardians when reporting their student’s absences from school.

The dashboard only includes illness related absences on a school level and does not include information on a grade or classroom level. We have made the decision to share this information with our school communities because we are tracking the numbers closely and continue to work with KFL&A Public Health in monitoring Limestone schools.

Providing school level data based on illness-related absences may provide greater insight into virus activity within a school community and the broader community.

Information reported on this dashboard is voluntary and may not represent the full extent of illness activity within the Limestone District School Board. The dashboard will be updated daily at 11:30 p.m., with the previous day’s attendance. Friday’s absences will be reported on Mondays. The dashboard will display absence data for the past two weeks.
