Did You Know?

 

A student may be considered chronically absent if he or she misses as few as two days of school a month.

When do you think absences seriously affect a student's ability to do well in school?  Is it when a student is absent 18 days during a school year? Or when they miss 10 percent of the total school days in a year? Or when they miss 2 days of school per month?  These are different ways of saying the same thing and is know as "chronic absenteeism."

A student is less likely to succeed if he or she misses just two days a month, regardless of the reason for the absence.  Research shows that the children who miss just two days a month throughout the school year in kindergarten and first grade are much less likely to read at grade level by the end of the 3rd grade.  By 6th grade they are at risk for dropping out, and by 9th grade, they are less likely to graduate.  Good attendance can predict graduation rates even better than 8th grade test scores.

Keep your child "Working on the Work".  It is important to their future!
