Mission: Graduate Attendance Initiative

Every day matters. Research shows that starting in kindergarten, students who miss just 2 days of school a month--whether excused or unexcused--are less likely to read proficiently by third grade. By ninth grade, a student's attendance is one of the strongest predictors of whether he or she will graduate from high school. Making sure students show up at school is key to improving their chances at completing high school, going on to college, and securing viable employment.
