SCHOOL ATTENDANCE-BE THERE

School Attendance - Be There

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.
