Attendance Awareness Month is a nationwide event recognizing the connection between school attendance and academic achievement. The goal is to mobilize schools and communities not only to promote the value of good attendance but also to take concrete steps toward reducing chronic absence. Good attendance helps children do well in school and eventually in the workplace. Missing just two days a month can cause a child to fall behind.
For classroom materials and additional information on the importance of attendance, please see the articles shared at the attendance awareness web site.
