September is Attendance Awareness Month

Calhoun County ISD is sharing messages and statistics on various communication platforms and media sites this month to help staff, parents, students and community members understand the direct correlation between good attendance and student achievement, teacher effectiveness and school revenue (resources).

Unnecessary student absences are costly in a variety of ways:

  1. Students can’t learn: When students are absent, they are missing opportunities to learn, socialize and be inspired.
  2. Teachers can’t teach: Teachers aren’t as effective when they have to spend time “catching up” students who have missed
  3. Schools lose funding: The state funds schools based on daily attendance. Every day missed cost the schools potential revenue that could be used to fund more teachers and programs. 

A growing body of research reveals the prevalence of chronic absence and its critical role in student achievement. This research also shows that chronic absence can be addressed when school districts, communities, and policymakers work together to monitor the problem and implement solutions that target the underlying causes.

When we reduce chronic absence we improve graduation rates, increase academic achievement and give young people the best chance at success in their adult life.
