"Tardies last year totaled 6,773 for the first Trimester alone. If each tardy is three minutes that means that 20,319 minutes of instruction were lost in the first Trimester. Comparing last year’s first Trimester total tardies to this year, results indicate a decrease of 50 percent. Because of the “start on time” interventions, it was estimated that 10,134 minutes of instruction have been recaptured."
