This year to increase attendance at parent teacher conferences Kayhi administration tried a new method. It succeeded as 58-percent of the student body was represented.
Secretary Kelli Carlin-Auger said it was an efficient new system.
“It’s called Powerschool Messenger, and we used it for the first time this year,” said Carlin-Auger. “What it does is find the parents contact information, and sends out the voicemail.”
Counselor Lynn Wadley said it is important for parents and students to attend.
“We don’t track student attendance,” said Wadley, “but often the ones who show up are the ones who struggle.”
Kayhi has an enrollment of 616 students, with 217 students represented on Monday, and 146 on Tuesday.
