We know from experience, and what research confirms: showing up for school matters.
When students attend school, they are more likely to achieve in math, reading, and writing. When students are involved and invested in their school community early on, they typically remain involved and invested in their secondary school experience.
To encourage school attendance Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) recently launched an attendance management campaign I’m Here, with a goal to do just that – reduce persistent absences in elementary school which can lead to a reduced level of early school leaving in the secondary panel.
School attendance is a community responsibility and everyone – staff, students, parents/guardians, and community partners – has a role to play in helping improve school attendance!
