Launching the 2023 Attendance Awareness Campaign!

March 25, 2023

“Showing Up Together!” is the theme of 2023’s Attendance Awareness Campaign, which begins this month.

We’re using this 11th annual campaign to encourage everyone to remember that students are more likely to attend school if they feel emotionally and physically safe, connected and supported and believe they can learn and achieve.

The theme “Showing Up Together!” speaks to the importance of joining together to address the devastating effects of interrupted learning and increased economic stress.

This year’s campaign will highlight the value of partnerships to build and implement long-term plans to address today’s unusually high levels of absenteeism. We will emphasize the need to ensure the positive conditions for learning—degraded during the pandemic—that motivate students and families to engage and show up for school even when it is challenging. And we will share strategies that research and practice show can improve attendance and engagement.
