Attendance Counts!

September is Attendance Awareness Month!   Share the News…..

 

New Study:    Student Attendance Matters for Academic Performance: A state-by-state analysis of national testing data demonstrates that students who miss more school than their peers consistently score lower on standardized tests, a result that holds true at every age, in every demographic group and in every state and city tested. 

 

In fourth grade, the absentee students scored an average 12 points lower on the reading assessment than those with no absences — more than a full grade level on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)  achievement scale. In eighth grade, absentee students scored an average 18 points lower on the math assessment.

Our attendance at Sebago Elementary is off to a great start. Keep up the good work!
