Let's help our children succeed!
Did you know that missing just 10% of the school year in the early grades can leave many students struggling throughout elementary school? Or that by 6th grade, missing that much school is strongly linked to course failure and even eventually dropping out of high school? That’s just 18 days — or two to three days per month. Every school day counts, and everyone can make a difference: educators, afterschool programs, elected officials, businesses and parents.
September is Attendance Awareness Month. Let's rally our community around the importance of attendance and its role in academic achievement.
