Attendance Makes a Difference!

Recently I read the following quote, thought I'd share.

"The single most important factor contributing to student achievement is school attendance. Students must be in school to be successful." (Journal of Educational Research, Vol. 89 No. 3)

Did you know that students who attend school regularly ...
  • have higher test scores?
  • are more involved in school activities?
  • feel safer?
  • maintain healthy friendships?
  • are less inclined to participate in at-risk behaviors?
  • are more likely to graduate?
  • are more likely to attend college? 
Habits that children develop in their school 'career' often transfer to their work career. Help your child develop the habit of attending school every day, on time, and being prepared for the day!  The Chadron Public Schools strongly believes that daily attendance is critical to academic achievement. We expect every student to attend school day and classes on time every day.
