Attendance is a critical foundation for school success. Students need to attend school to achieve in school. In fact:
We can’t teach students when they are not in school. We are calling on all parents, students and community members to help ensure that students attend school – every student, every day. Setting good attendance patterns at a young age can positively affect later behavior.
We want all students to attend school at least 95% of the time – that means missing no more than nine days a year. Right now less than 60% of students meet this goal. Let’s work together to ensure that all Minneapolis Public Schools students are attending school all the time!
