 ATTENDANCE MATTERS AT KES

MISSING SCHOOL = MISSING OUT

Missing school can lead to a student not being successful and not being prepared for the next grade level, but more importantly, it represents lost time in the classroom and a lost opportunity to learn. (http://www.houstonisd.org/attendance)

  • A child is considered chronically absent if they miss two or more days a month. That includes unexcused and excused absences.
  • Attendance matters as early as kindergarten. Studies show that children who miss too many days in kindergarten and first grade have trouble mastering reading.
  • By grade 6, chronic absence is a proven warning sign that a student is at risk of dropping out.
  • By grade 9, good attendance can predict graduations rates even better than eighth-grade test scores.
  • Attendance also affects a school’s budget. When students miss class, their campus’ average daily attendance rate drops, which can reduce the funding it receives to support its programs.

We understand that students may become ill and we encourage students to stay home if they are not well.  Otherwise, we want to see
Every Student, Every Day!
