Build the Habit of Good Attendance

Parents and educators have a key role in our children’s success, and it all starts with teaching, building and supporting good life habits.

Good habits:

  • Start early and last a lifetime
  • Become second nature through regular practice
  • Are a part of the learning process
  • Makes us more productive and effective
  • Are the basis to success
  • Are powerful

One of the most important life habits we can instill in our students is attendance, or “showing up.”

Showing up is more than just attending school; it is a commitment, and it represents responsibility. It’s showing up to school as well as being present and engaged.

Like you, we care about your children’s education and about their future. You have big dreams for your child and we share those dreams. Here’s why attendance is so important for success:

  • Attendance is the No. 1 predictor of dropout and graduation rates.
  • Attendance and GPA are the biggest indicators and influences of college and career readiness.
  • More than half of future dropouts can be predicted by sixth grade, based on attendance and failure in English and math.
  • Students who miss 10 or more days of school are 20 percent less likely to graduate from high school.
  • Students who miss school at an early age are more likely to struggle academically and, in later years, to drop out entirely.
  • Students who miss 10 or more days of school are 25 percent less likely to enroll in college.

Help your child succeed in school and in life—together, let’s build the habit of showing up!
