Action Research on Tardiness

INTRODUCTION
Punctuality is an important part of self discipline and is essential to
good time management. It will encompass all of the positive action in all
aspects. Though it was less appreciated in other situations like
productivity against punctuality, none the less, it is still very vital in
situations that needed it most. We recognize pupil performance and well
being go hand in hand doing well in education is the most effective
route for success. Attending and achieving at school is a core
requirement.
This study will determine the factors affecting pupils in their daily
routine during school days. Always and often times being tardy in the flag
ceremony, and during the first period in the afternoon class session.

PROBLEM
There is about 20% of the Hello kitty/ Dora Kindergarten Class at
Dadiangas East Elementary School who are always late in attending the
flag ceremony as well as in attending to their respective classes. This
problem had accumulated from tolerable to habitual state and it has a
significant impact in their performance at school.
Most of the pupils problem is the distance between residence
and school as well as their family values on punctuality. The School aims
to provide a welcoming and safe environment which encourages
attendance and promotes the best performance from children. Any
tardiness and absence from school disrupts the continuity of learning and
may lead to under-achievement or inappropriate behavior.

PROBABLE CAUSES
Distance between residence and school
Sleeping habit/ TV shows obsession
Financial Constraints/Standard of Living
Family Values on punctuality
Mode of transportation
Teacher related cause
Peer Influence/Camaraderie
Bullying/ stress factor
Classroom supervision
