Murrieta Valley Unified School District (Murrieta Valley USD), A California Model School Attendance Review Board District for the 2020-21 school year, has implemented RaaWee TDPS as their collaborative platform. RaaWee, an added toolset, supports the district’s goal of “boldly and aggressively advocating for justice, equity, and access for all students, parents, and staff.”

This focus translates to Murrieta Valley USD’s attendance and engagement efforts as “ensuring that all students have equitable access to the academic and social opportunities provided by our district’s programs. Student attendance and engagement work is foundational equity work. It is critical to assessing how our programs serve our student groups equitably and shining light on opportunities to improve.” The data provided by RaaWee supports Murrieta Valley USD's partnership with the Riverside County Office of Education to address district-wide equity and student re-engagement goals. The implementation of RaaWee K12 TDPS has proven to be an invaluable tool to fulfill these goals.

“Implementing restorative practices during attendance meetings with families is key to our efforts in addressing educational equity and student re-engagement,” notes Katy Wood, Coordinator - Student Support Services at Murrieta Valley USD, Murrieta, CA. The strength of these practices and tools facilitates strategic collaborations within and outside of the school district.

Using RaaWee and interpreting the data in this platform has shifted the district away from punitive interventions, historically used to address chronic absenteeism/truancy issues to a highly supportive, compassionate, and restorative approach. Awareness and rollout of these new techniques are being provided to district, community, county, and state stakeholders in a series of training events.

Saleem Qazi, CEO of RaaWee K12 Solutions, states, “We at RaaWee see this collaborative and restorative approach to re-engaging students after a year of distance learning as a most important use of our tools. Murrieta Valley USD’s response to the pandemic’s resulting loss of learning is a model for districts across the country.”
