AttendaNCe Counts! Take this short survey to tell us what matters most for regular school attendance

We all want our children to succeed in school, and attending class every day can help make that happen. We want to learn from NC elementary school, Head Start, and preschool teachers and staff, and parents of NC elementary school and preschool children how your school encourages regular school attendance. Please take this short survey, and see what others are saying, too.

We know that when young children are chronically absent – missing a couple days of school every month – they are less likely to read on grade level and more likely to be held back a grade. If we learn more about how schools handle chronic absenteeism, we can determine what supports all schools may need to improve regular attendance.

Please tell us about your experience! Results are anonymous, and you do not need to share your school’s name unless you would like to.
