Attendance Matters


September is Attendance Awareness Month

Superintendent Fleming signed a proclamation declaring September as Attendance Awareness Month. HCS Social Workers stand in support to help bring awareness to the importance of student attendance in our schools. 

Families, educators, and community partners should monitor how many days a student misses school. Teachers, mentors, and other school staff in our schools are engaging families and students to pay attention to absences and find ways to overcome barriers. Improving student attendance is essential for ensuring student success and reducing achievement gaps. Chronic absence is a problem we can and must solve if we want our students to benefit fully from an education that prepares them for success in school, work, and life.
