Student Attendance

Just Say Go!

 Why does school attendance make a difference?

One of the most important things families can do to help their children succeed is to make sure they attend school regularly. Students might skip school once or twice on a whim, but when they frequently miss school, they need help. Left unchecked, truancy can have strong negative effects on students’ lives. It can block future opportunities and lead to drug use, daytime crime and violence.

Why Should Children go to School?

California Education Code stipulates that “Each person between the ages of 6 and 18 years...is subject to compulsory fulltime education.” In other words, theymust go to school.

There are many reasons why children should not miss school or class. First of all, 90% of success is showing up! Statistics show skipping school is directly linked to poor grades or frustrations in learning.

Students who miss just (1) one day of school fall at least three (3) days behind their peers in the classroom. This leads to low self-esteem and eventually to low perceptions of the likelihood of graduating.

Missing school not only weakens a child’s confidence in his or her ability to do schoolwork, but also school truancy in grades K-6 is the main precursor for more serious behaviors at the 7-12 grade levels.
