SEPTEMBER IS ATTENDANCE AWARENESS MONTH

PARENTS SHOULD ENCOURAGE THEIR CHILDREN TO COME TO SCHOOL EVERYDAY.

There’s no better time than the beginning of the school year to encourage students to be in school on time, every day. Last September, there were 604,312 recorded absences in our state. For the entire 2013-14 school year, there were 7,024,152 absences, equal to more than 49 million hours of missed instruction and learning.

Poor attendance can start as early as kindergarten and continue to affect achievement through high school. Chronic absenteeism is missing 10% (18 to 20 days) or more of school for any reason. Research indicates that attendance is a major indicator for students eventually dropping out of school. 

Therefore, September has been proclaimed “Alabama Attendance Awareness Month” in support of a national campaign to increase the understanding for educators, parents, students, and community partners of the major impact school attendance has on the successful rates, both academically and behaviorally, of our students.
