Attendance Matters

Why does attendance matter?

It is more difficult for children to learn to read and to gain other foundational academic skills when they miss many school days. Students who are chronically absent in preschool, kindergarten, and first grade are much less likely to read at grade level by third grade and are more likely to have poor attendance in later grades.
