Beechfield Attendance Incentive Project

Wednesday, April 6th, 2016
School-Attendance

School attendance is imperative for academic success. The Baltimore Attendance Incentive Project inspires attendance!

Attendance plays a major role in the academic success of young students. To put it simply, school-aged children should be in school when they are supposed to. Student attendance can plummet for several reasons including sickness, lack of transportation, lack of resources, and socioeconomic hardships.

If you are a parent, you should recognize that missing a few days of school here and there can negatively impact your child’s success, understanding, and academic values for years to come. Chronic absence, identified in Maryland as 20 days missed or more, is also a contributing factor to the high school dropout rate. My Brother’s Keeper is here to share some results with you regarding our Beechfield Attendance Incentive Project. (more…)
