The “Be There” Attendance Campaign is a school-wide initiative to get students to school everyday. Be There encourages student attendance by pairing them with a buddy and providing incentives for being at school.
“Be There” focuses on a students chronic absenteeism rather than truancy. Chronic Absenteeism is defined as missing 10% of the school year which calculates out to 18 days per year or only 2 days per month. Chronic Absenteeism includes both excused and unexcused absences. Truancy is punitive and only calculates unexcused absences.
