ALABAMA IS BUILDING EXCELLENT SCHOOL ATTENDANCE

Important Facts About Attendance

Did you know that poor school attendance can start as early as kindergarten and can affect a student’s achievement through high school? Consistent school attendance is very important. It allows students to build strong foundational skills in reading, math, and language.

Poor attendance can influence whether children read proficiently by the end of third grade. By sixth grade, chronic absences become a leading indicator if a student will drop out of high school.
