Attendance Matters! This is why you are encouraged to check out Count ME In’s regional spring meeting. These meetings will be held in Lewiston on March 24, in Portland on March 31, and in Augusta on April 7. Attendees will hear schools share effective strategies as well as parent perspective on school attendance. Sessions are free but registration is required. To learn more, visit www.countmeinmaine.org.
Attendance Matters because early absences can affect later achievement, since students can miss some of the key building blocks for learning. Also, absences add up more quickly than you realize, given that just two days a month can mean 18 absences a year.
