September is School Attendance Awareness Month


 *Good attendance helps children do well in school and eventually in the workplace.

Good attendance matters for school success, starting as early as prekindergarten

and throughout elementary school.  By intermediate and high school, poor attendance is a

leading indicator of dropout.  Developint the havit of attendance preapres students

for success on the job and in life.

*Excused and unexcused absences quickly add up to too much time lost in the


*Students are at risk academically if they  miss 10 percent of the school year, or

about 18 days.

*Chronic absence, missing 10 percent or more of the school year does not just

affect the students who miss school.

IF too many students are chronically absent, it slows down instruction for other students,

who must wait while the teacher repeats material for absentee students.  This makes

it harder for students to learn and teachers to teach.

Let's help student build a habit of good attendance early & often.
