What is the BASIS deployment plan for truancy notification letters to parents/guardians?

The deployment schedule for the new BASIS attendance module is as follows. BAT teams will be contacting sites to troubleshoot the new system and walk staff through the rollout. The module will be a new tab in the BASIS system which can be accessed at usebasis.com.


  • Tue 9/15/2015: Initial rollout of Truancy module, showing actual attendance data and allowing sites to defer individual letters. We are launching early to provide adequate time for internal SFUSD staff to validate our data and truancy calculations.
  • Tue 9/29/2015: First 3-day warning emails re: truancy data review sent to sites. "Remove-Only" mode for Notice of Truancy (NOT)  list.
  • Sat 10/3/2015: First batch of NOT letters mailed. NOT list returns to "Add/Remove" mode.

One request: Can schools please send their  truancy/attendance contacts at each school  to Eddie Chung chunge@sfusd.edu by the end of Friday, 09/04/2015.  These are the folks who will receive those 3-day warning email notices Re: truancy data that they need to review truancy data for their school.
