Every Day Counts: Improved Attendance Leads to Improved Learning

The Austin City Limits festival kicks off today at Zilker Park and with it comes the lure of good music and fun.

While the festival is tempting to attend today, Austin ISD wants to remind its families, students and staff members of the importance of being in class all day, every day.

Because when it comes to school, students who miss school miss out. Attendance boosts student achievement, improves the quality of your child's educational experience, and it prepares them for college, good careers, and successful adulthood. 

As part of the AISD "Every Day Counts" Attendance Campaign, launched in 2010, we have worked to create an informational website as an online resource for everyone invested in the education of our students. The site includes a toolkit available to the community, staff members and families.
