August 2020: "Back-To-School" & Attendance Matters!
Each month, the Coalition focuses on a specific campaign to share with our audiences; our August awareness campaign, “On Time, On Target” Attendance Awareness includes information about virtual school/distance learning, with best practices and guidance on how to ensure your child is on track as you help them learn to thrive and succeed virtually.
Now more than ever, as a result of the many challenges presented by the pandemic; attendance awareness is very important. Attendance has a big impact on academic performance and success. Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Start building this habit, so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. We have flyers and links about this topic, please contact us at 561.514.3300 and ask to receive these via mail!
