September is Attendance Awareness Month

Parents and caregivers are arguably the most important stakeholders in a child’s educational success.

With nearly 1.3 million students dropping out of high school each year, the Annie E. Casey Foundation and America’s Promise Alliance developed framework to engage parents in dropout prevention and development strategies to ensure the success of all children.

  1. Attendance Every Day: Ensure that children go to school regularly 
  2. Achievement Every Year: Monitor and help children make satisfactory progress each year 
  3. Attainment Over Time: Set high expectations for children and plan for attaining their long-term goals
  4. Advocacy For All: Empowering parents and families to improve opportunities for excellence in education
