Attendance Resources for Families

Updated: Oct 3, 2023

You know that EVERY DAY MATTERS.

Your student’s attendance directly correlates with their academic success. Being out of school just 2 days per month adds up to 18 days by the end of the year; that's a full MONTH of school time they missed! It’s easy to underestimate how much school a child is missing if the days are intermittent.

Know the facts!

Chronically absent students (missing just 18 days in a 180-day school year) are at higher risk of dropping out, performing lower academically, and being unprepared for the future.

Whether your student is enrolled in preschool, early grades, elementary school, middle school, or high school, they need to show up EVERY DAY to live up to their full potential and reach for all the opportunities available.

Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Start building this habit in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Even as children grow older and more independent, families play a key role in making sure students are showing up EVERY DAY to access learning opportunities and understand why attendance is so important for success in school and on the job.

Good attendance will be a skill that will help them succeed in high school and college. Learn more about building positive attendance habits at whatever age with handouts from our partners at Attendance Works.
