Attendance Matters!
We Want Every Child to Succeed!
Kent School District children need to be at school:
On Time All Day Every Day (If they are healthy enough to attend )
For each day a student is absent it takes an average of 3 days to catch up.
Missing 3 or more days of school per month can set a student back from 1 to 2 full years
of learning!
Achieve grade level standard at a higher rate.
Graduate from high school at a higher rate.
Develop good habits that contribute to success in school and in future careers
