Attendance Awareness Campaign - Attend Today, Achieve Tomorrow
September is Attendance Awareness Month. Regular attendance is vital for student success. When students attend regularly they have an opportunity to achieve academically and thrive. Research shows when students are chronically absent -- missing 10% or more of the school year or 18 days over an entire year -- they are less likely to read proficiently by third grade, achieve in middle school and graduate from high school. Missing school means missing opportunities to learn and connect.
Regular attendance is an important building block for student learning. Attending school regularly helps students feel better about school and themselves.
