Did you know?

  • Missing school consecutively (2 or more times a month) leads to a student falling behind academically with gaps in learning.
  • Children that are chronically absent in Kindergarten and First Grade are less likely to read at their grade level by 3rd grade.
  • Children who are chronically absent by sixth grade show warning signs of dropping out of school.
  • If your child has good attendance by ninth grade, the school can better predict higher graduation rates than their scores on their eighth grade tests.
  • Chronic absenteeism not only affects student achievement, it can affect a student's attitude and behavior at school. When a student has attendance issues, achievement issues and behavior issues, it increases their risk of dropping out of school.
