Year two of our county-wide
Attendance Awareness Campaign 
is underway!
Theme for Febuary: 
Attending school helps me, and my future because...

Key Message: 
By the 6th grade, if a student continues to be chronically absent, it is a leading indicator of whether he or she will drop out of high school.

Communication Tools/Strategies:  Making sure that kids show up for school everyday is important to their child's success throught the rest of their lives. Take a moment to review the links below. 

These resources will help you plan your messages, support parent engagement, and help you ensure a positive impact on your studen's future.

Engage now, and help us boost school attendance and reduce truancy countywide! You can also follow the status of the county-wide campaign and share the strategies that you are using at your site on on social media
