Superintendents Call to Action
The Attendance Awareness Month convening partners are calling on Superintendents across the country to raise your voices and lead the effort to improve attendance starting in the early grades in your community. While schools alone can’t do all it takes to improve student attendance, every successful initiative ultimately relies on educators deciding to make the reduction of chronic absence a priority.
We urge you to:
If you’ve signed the Call to Action, consider using or adapting these media tools to help spread the word about your district’s involvement. Use this as an opportunity to build awareness about reducing chronic absence and invite key stakeholders to join local efforts to improve school attendance, starting in the early grades.
