Sasame Elementary School in Saitama implemented an AI system to identify students at risk of absenteeism: the deputy principal, Kawakami Naoko, was initially perplexed when AI flagged a student with no apparent issues. After consulting with the student's homeroom teacher, they monitored the student closely. Sasame Elementary is among 18 schools in Toda City that have adopted this AI tool since December to evaluate students' attendance risks.





The AI model analyzes data on students' attendance, use of a health care room, answers to a questionnaire about school life, the results of achievement tests and daily notes on mental and physical health the pupils write into their respective tablets. The AI software calculates the absentee risks of the students, showing the results in red, pink, orange and yellow in order of high to low risk. Only principals and deputy principals have authorized access to the AI system at these schools. If the names of students whom they have concerns about pop up, they consult with the pupils' homeroom teachers to ascertain what has been bothering the children. Kawakami hailed the new system's proficiency in detecting students at risk.
