September is Attendance Awareness Month

Did you know absenteeism in the first month of school can predict poor attendance throughout the school year? Half the students who miss 2-4 days in September go on to miss nearly a month of school. An estimated 5 to 7.5 million U.S. students miss nearly a month of school each year.

Research shows that missing 10% of school, or about 18 days in most school districts, negatively affects a student’s academic performance. That’s just two days a month and that’s known as chronic absence.

Attendance improves when schools engage students and parents in positive ways and when schools provide mentors for chronically absent students. When students improve their attendance rates, they improve their academic prospects and chances for graduating!
