September is Attendance Awareness Month and we hope you take some time to reflect on what you can do to help get your students to school every day. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the national average a student spends in a classroom is 6.7 hours a day. Research from our friends at Attendance Works indicates that missing just 2 days of school a month means a child misses 10% instruction time for the school year. Student attendance is one of the most common predictors of academic achievement and it is critical that students attend school, on time, every day in order to gain the greatest benefit from their education.
We want to partner with you to make attendance a priority all year long so you can help your students build a habit of good attendance early and often. Good attendance contributes to students doing well in school and eventually the workplace.
Below are just a few ways Schoolzilla’s Mosaic can help you track trends in attendance and understand where you can provide support within your district’s schools and classrooms. For more information, talk to us today!
