While September is Attendance Awareness Month, our district's pledge is to create a culture of attendance every day, every month. We know that achievement and student success is inextricably linked to attendance. Your school district leadership and staff are dedicated to ongoing communication, support and encouragement around the importance of showing up. The most important thing we can do for our children to be successful in life is to get them to school every day and every day on time.
- In the elementary years, children who miss school are more likely to struggle academically and, in later years, to dropout entirely
- In the secondary years, attendance is the No. 1 predictor of dropout and graduation rates
- Attendance is a top indicator of being on track for graduation and for college and career readiness
- Nearly 67% of course failures were attributed to low attendance
Every year, thanks to our partnerships, we strive for continuous attendance improvements. With you on our team, we are recovering valuable learning time for our students. Thank you for your dedication all year long. Together we are making a difference!
ATTENDANCE: EVERY STUDENT, EVERY DAY!
