September is Attendance Awareness Month. We want our families, community members and staff to remember the importance of being in class. Good attendance is central to student achievement and our broader efforts to improve schools. It doesn't take too many missed days, excused or not, to effect student learning. A student is considered chronically absent when they miss 10 percent of the school year, or about 18 days of school, which is equal to missing two days of school every month. Data shows that being chronically absent in kindergarten can lead to students not reading at grade level in third grade, and students who don't read proficiently in third grade are more likely to struggle in school as they get older. Let's work together to make sure students in school. Attendance matters - miss school and miss out!

With a student enrollment that continues to grow and efforts in place to maintain smaller class sizes, it comes as no surprise that the school district could use a little more space. Over the course of the next few weeks, 10 new classrooms should be up and running throughout the district – housing everything from elementary school classrooms to high school math classes.
