Attendance Challenge

This year, the North Scott Community School District is teaming up with school districts across the Quad Cities and the United Way to increase attendance.  We encourage you to watch this one-minute video about the mission and importance of having students at school every day.

Here's some things to think about:

Missing just two days a month, or 18 days, makes your child chronically absent, putting he or she at risk.

More than eight in 10 chronically absent kindergartners and first graders will not read at grade level by the end of third grade.
Three out of four sixth graders who are chronically absent will never graduate high school.

Here’s five ways you can help make sure your child goes to school

Set a regular bed time
Prep clothes and backpacks the night before
Only keep children home if they are truly sick
Have a backup plan for getting to school.
Avoid scheduling doctor appointments and trips during school hours.
