Spread the Word: September is Attendance Awareness Month

Attendance is one of the outcome measures school counselors implementing the ASCA National Model use for outcome data. A great resource for ideas about how to promote on time and on target school attendance is available free at They have the whole compliment of resources for Attendance Awareness Month including a free webinar, toolkit, great graphics, sample tweets, and materials in Spanish too! We have done this annually at my school. We have each teacher put a slide in their Back-to-school Night PowerPoint addressing our attendance policy. We have a very visible bulletin board in place for the first day of school so parents can clearly see what time we want our students at school (10 minutes before school actually starts so they can get settled and ready to learn with the bell),
