The mission of Attendance Works "is to advance student success and reduce equity gaps by reducing chronic absence."
Through Attendance Awareness Month, they are bringing to light the issues caused by chronic absence, how we as guardians and educators can combat it, and how to create a positive school climate that engages students and families in learning and sets the expectation that attendance matters.
"Parents want their children to do well in school but many don’t fully understand the connection between chronic absence and a student’s academic achievement. Hand out these flyers to help build the habit of attendance!" - Attendance Works
