EVERY DAY COUNTS! School Success Begins with Attendance
Bringing Attendance Home Parent Video
In Bringing Attendance Home, a video from Attendance Works, a variety of parents speak about the importance of school attendance and making sure absences don’t add up. This video offers practical, every day steps parents can take to help their children attend school and highlights ways schools and communities can help reduce barriers to attendance. Link to the video in Spanish.
Please note: This video presents national chronic absence numbers from 2014. For example, the number of students chronically absent is no longer one out of 10 students. In 2017-18 school year, 8 million, or one out of six students, were chronically absent. Given challenges created by the pandemic, chronic absence now affects even more children.
