Things you should know:
Increased Attendance Means More Teachers
Everyone knows that attending school is important for kids. Missed school days mean missed lessons, missed assignments, and falling behind in class. But did you know that increasing attendance equals more teachers for our classrooms? In our school district, a 1% increase in attendance means the district could hire additional teachers, teachers that could be used to reduce the numbers in the most overcrowded classes. Everyone can help. Of course students will be sick – and when a student isn’t feeling will, he or she should stay home. But missing school for other reasons can be avoided. The school calendar offers several full weeks off (Thanksgiving, Winter Break, and Spring Break) plus several three and four day weekends throughout the year. Use these breaks to take family vacations or to simply take time off. If we can sustain a higher attendance rate, not only will students benefit from time in class, but the district will have the resources to hire additional staff – both of which are goals worth achieving.
