  • Student and Staff Reported Absence Dashboards

    In the Louis Riel School Division (LRSD), we have developed dashboards that allow the public to view self-reported student absences and are developing dashboards related to staff absences. The dashboards will refresh every school day at 4:30 p.m. The pages will also be consistently monitored for any reporting updates and amended accordingly. 

    These dashboards allow the community to monitor the impact of COVID-19 in schools in LRSD. They also provide the community with a glimpse into the reports we look at internally to monitor, make decisions about our schools' capacities, and provide information to the government in a timely and evidenced-informed way.

    Student Dashboards

    Overall Student Absence Rates Dashboard

    This dashboard aims to provide the community with an overall view of how absences are trending in LRSD. The data goes back to the first day of school in September and provides a visual baseline of absences to date in the 2021-2022 school year. On the Overall Student Absence Rates Dashboard, individuals can view the percentage of the student population that was absent for any reason and any portion of the day. This can be broken down divisionally by grade level.

    COVID-Related Student Absences Dashboard

    On the COVID-Related Student Absences Dashboard, individuals can view the number of self-reported COVID-related student absences for the division as a whole and in a given school and/or grade. These absences include instances when a student:
    a)       tests positive on a COVID-19 PCR or Rapid Antigen Test*

    and/or

    b)      has COVID-19 symptoms

    and/or

    c)       is isolating due to COVID-19

    *The recording of self-reported absences based on Rapid Antigen Tests began on January 10.

    From Jan. 10 to Jan. 14, 2022, school attendance was limited to the children of Critical Service Workers in Kindergarten to Grade 6 and students with additional needs from kindergarten to Grade 12. Attendance is not being reported for students engaged in independent learning during those dates.
