Why Does Attendance Matter?

  • Research demonstrates a strong connection between student attendance and academic performance.
  • Regular attendance allows students to establish and nurture relationships.
  • Students who get to school each day have a better chance of learning and succeeding
  • Research shows that students that miss two days of school per month can struggle with reading and this may lead to social emotional stress.
  • When your student misses school they also lose valuable learning time, can fall behind in their school work and as a result, it’s difficult to catch up.
  • Students chronically absent in kindergarten and 1st grade are much less likely to read at grade level by the end of 3rd grade.
  • By 6th grade, chronic absence is a proven early warning sign for students at-risk for dropping out of school.
