Help your child succeed in school: Build the habit of good attendance early. Good attendance will help children do well in high school, college, and at work.
Students can suffer academically if they miss 10% of the school year or about 18 days. That's just one day every two weeks.
Research shows that missing 2-3 days a month can result in:
- 3rd-grade students falling behind in reading
- 6th-grade students failing courses
- Teens dropping out of high school
Sporadic absences matter. Just one or two days a month can add up before you know it!
