Attendance Matters

absenteeism
- If you think missing a day here or there won’t matter, think again. By missing just one day every two weeks, you would be on track to miss two full weeks of the school year.

• Did you know that a student who misses 10 days or more during a school year is 20 percent less likely to graduate from high school and 25 percent less likely to ever enroll in college?

• Chronic absence can affect your ability to earn a living. Dropouts are less likely to succeed in a career.  In fact, a high school graduate makes, on average, $1 million more than a dropout over a lifetime.

• School only gets harder when you skip a class. Sometimes it’s tempting to skip or stay home because you don’t understand what’s going on in class. But missing a day only makes that worse because you aren’t learning something that will help you understand a lesson later on.

Remember, it's easier to keep up than to catch up! Make every day count and be in school/class  every day and on time!
