Consistent school attendance and student achievement go hand-in-hand. According to the Virginia Department of Education, students who miss two to four days of school in September are five times more likely to become chronically absent, or miss 18+ school days, across the year. Missing just 2 days a month can affect students’ grades, reading level, and even their likelihood of graduating.
Students must be in school to learn, and we value our partnership with families to ensure the success of all students! Learn more about our attendance policy, and our intervention steps to support student attendance, on our website.
