#schooleveryday ACS participate in Attendance Awareness Campaign
Students are at risk academically if they are chronically absent (missing just two days a month or 10 percent of the school year)! The early school years are essential for laying a foundation for strong attendance and academic success in future years. By middle and high school, poor attendance is even more predictive of dropout.
Each absence represents a preventable lost opportunity to learn in the classroom. We can't afford to view absenteeism as merely a lack of compliance with school rules.
