Attendance Matters

The federal law, Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), requires school departments to report chronic-absenteeism rates.  This happens when students in grades K-12 are absent for 10% or more of the days enrolled, excused and unexcused.

Chronic-absenteeism impacts students’ educational progress often times limiting school success. The Augusta School Department tackles attendance problems on a daily basis using an array of strategies- some as simple as calling parents and others as complex as offering support services and initiating the truancy process.

During the 2017-2018 school year, the school department’s data indicated that over 18% of our students were considered chronically absent from school. These students were missing more than 17 days of school during one school year.

It is important to create a culture of school attendance and therefore we ask our school community, parents, students and stakeholders to support this effort.  When kids aren’t in school, they can’t benefit from the instruction that’s being offered and learning gaps are reinforced.  They have a right to be educated, let’s get it done together and build a stronger, smarter community.
