Did you know that missing just 10 percent of the school year in the early grades can leave many students struggling throughout elementary school? Or that by sixth grade, missing only that much school is strongly linked to course failure and even dropping out of high school? That's just 18 days of the school year or two to three days per month. Attendance Awareness Month aims to bring awareness of attendance issues, absenteeism, and the effects attendance can have on academic performance and success. Schools can help promote Attendance Awareness Month with many great promotional materials found online at websites such as AttendanceWorks.com.
September is #AttendanceAwareness Month! 🙋✔️ Help us promote the importance of attendance online and through conversations with your students.
