|Name of the Module||Uncontrolled absenteeism|
|Introduction of the Module||The introduction of orientation programs for students who have just started school and are struggling to succeed in their classes. Module 4 has 4 units.
Absenteeism refers to a student being absent from school. Absences can be. motivationally based (i.e. poor relationships with other students, academic failure) and. structurally based (i.e. having to work during school hours, taking care of a sick family member).
Absenteeism can be categorized as either uncontrollable or controllable. Uncontrollable absences include family illness, accidents, jury duty and unexpected emergencies. A typical controllable absence may be dissatisfaction with the school or class. No matter which type, absenteeism is disruptive to the school and student, reduces the quality of education, taking care of your students and raises operating costs.
Four percent or more is considered excessive as regards to absenteeism.
