We all want our children to succeed in school, and attending class every day can help make that happen. We want to learn from parents of NC preschool and elementary school children, Head Start and preschool staff, and NC elementary school teachers and staff how your school encourages regular school attendance.
We know that when young children are chronically absent – missing a couple days of school every month – they are less likely to read on grade level and more likely to be held back a grade. If we learn more about how elementary schools and preschools handle chronic absenteeism, we can determine what supports all schools may need to improve regular attendance.
Please tell us about your experience! Results are anonymous and we will not ask you for your school’s name.
