Regular daily attendance is important for academic success. It is crucial that you arrive at school on time and attend school on the days your program runs. Attendance in every class is vital to your academic success. Regular attendance is critical to a student’s success in school. The student who is frequently absent misses direct instruction from his/her teachers and the opportunity to collaborate with peers on topics. Even though written work can be made up, the loss of the instruction and collaboration hinder the student’s ability to fully achieve the expectations for learning. Any day or hour absent is a missed learning opportunity. Attendance is a key predictor of dropout students who create economic loss and jeopardize the future workforce since only 31% of dropouts keep a job for more than one year. In addition, the school loses funding for each absence, regardless of the reason; including illness or excused absences.
