  • Attendance Fact: Absenteeism in the first month of school can predict poor attendance throughout the school year. Half the students who miss 2-4 days in September go on to miss nearly a month of school. If your scholar has missed 2-3 days of school already, they are not on track to meet their academic goals. Help us close these gaps by sending your child to school every day! #closingtheachievementgap #IDEAProud #IDEAPublicSchools #ToandThrough #Attendance
