Attendance matters! During the first month of school poor attendance can predict problems with attendance throughout the school year. When students miss 2-4 days in September, they are likely to continue that trend and miss nearly a month of school.
Do you know how students do well in school? They attend every day!
The impact of less than perfect attendance, even 90% attendance is severe.
-For 6th graders chronic absence becomes a leading indicator that a student will drop out of high school.
-Students with less than 90% attendance are more likely to have lower test scores and not graduate high school.
-Poor attendance can influence whether children read proficiently by the end of third grade.
When students improve their attendance rates, they improve their academic prospects and chances for graduation.
Create a habit of good attendance and watch success follow.
Let’s aim for a perfect start of school that includes perfect attendance.
Looking forward to seeing our learners EVERY school day in September and throughout the year.
