During the 2014-15 school year, one out of every six students in Washington was absent at least 18 days. Each of those absences is a lost opportunity that brings the student closer to dropping out.
A nationwide effort is trying to help solve the problem: Attendance Awareness Month. Throughout September, events in more than 40 states, including Washington, will highlight efforts that schools and districts are doing to keep students in school and engaged.
Join KMS in our goal of having a whole school attendance of 95%!
