EVERY Student EVERY Day
More than 8 million students, nationally, are chronically absent each year. Excessive absence from school, whether excused or unexcused, affects students, their classmates, the school environment, and the community. Missing just two days per month - for any reason - can make a student chronically absent.
District 209 is working to raise awareness of the importance of regular school attendance, and we hope that you will join us in promoting regular school attendance for EVERY Student EVERY Day!

The members of the D209 Superintendent's Student Advisory Board (SSAB) have created the following public service announcement. Please enjoy and share!
Attendance Works - Attendance Works is a non-profit national initiative whose mission is to advance student success and reduce equity gaps by reducing chronic absence.
