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 middle and high school, poor attendance is a leading indicator of dropout.
Research shows that missing 2-3 days a month can result in:
- Third-grade students falling behind in reading
- Sixth-grade students failing courses
- Teens dropping out of high school
As a community, we can work together to help our students be at school and learning. Use the resources and strategies below to engage your community and families and promote good attendance practices.
