Attendance Matters!

Dear parents and students:  Studies have shown that September absences predict later chronic absence (missing more than 18 days a year.  Students who missed 2 or more days in September were significantly more likely to be chronically absent for the year. In fact, students who missed 2 to 4 days in September were 5 times more likely to be chronically absent than students who were absent fewer than 2 days.  Students who missed more than 4 days were over 16 times as likely to be chronically absent than students who were absent fewer than 2 days.

Let's partner together to ensure that regular attendance in September for Selah Academy Online and Selah Academy Big Picture Learning students increase their learning opportunities and graduation!  We are here to help!
