Count us in!
School attendance is crucial.
Missing just two days of school a month, excused or unexcused, is considered being chronically absent.
Students who are chronically absent in kindergarten are more likely to be behind in reading by the 3rd grade.
By 6th grade, students who have been chronically absent are more likely to be behind in core subjects.
By 9th grade, students who have been chronically absent are more likely to drop out of high school.
Attendance really does matter!
During the 2019-2020 school year, the Lake County Office of Education will:
- Coordinate attendance competitions for Lake County students - the Attendance Challenge and the Drive 4 Perfect Attendance.
- Provide professional development for staff at our local school districts focused on improving attendance.
- Communicate attendance information, to help educate our community on the importance of attendance.
