Many people think that attendance only matters in the higher grades, but that’s not true. Consistent attendance is very important for younger students too.  Every absence, in any grade – excused or not – can impact a child’s academic achievement.  Many of our youngest students miss 10% of the school year – about 18 days a year or just two days every month. Chronic absenteeism in kindergarten can predict lower test scores, poor attendance and retention in later grades, especially if the problem persists for more than a year.

  • One in 10 kindergartners missing 18 or more days of school, and these children are more likely to struggle in school and have poor attendance in later grades.

  • As early as 6th grade, missing 18+ days of school in a year predicts that a student will drop out of high school.

  • Missing just two days every month of the school year can allow a child to fall behind.

Why Attendance Matters

Students who miss 18 or more days in a school year – just 10% - are considered chronically absent and this can hurt their academic success and put them at-risk of dropping out. Students who attend school regularly are more likely than students who are chronically absent to:

  • Graduate and go on to college

  • Score higher on standardized tests

  • Learn to read well by the critical 3rd grade milestone

  • Be more engaged in school, feel better about themselves and are less likely to be depressed                                        

  • Build good habits for school and life (How many employers will tolerate a worker who misses 10 percent of work days?)

  • Break the cycle of poverty. If education is the escalator out of poverty, attendance is the engine that keeps the escalator running.

Parents – Let’s FINISH STRONG! Each day matters to your child’s success at Roosevelt!  Together we can help each child succeed and learn. Thank you for all you do!
