September is Attendance Awareness Month

What does the research tell us about the Importance of Attendance Patterns in Sept.?
  • Students who miss fewer than 2 days in September typically have good attendance rates for the entire year.
  • Half of the students who miss 2-4 days in Sept. will go on to miss a month or more of school (chronically absent).
  • Nearly 9 out of 10 students who miss more than 4 days in Sept. will become chronically absent this year.
