SCHOOL SUCCESS BEGINS WITH ATTENDANCE. EVERY CHILD IN EVERY SEAT EVERY DAY COUNTS! When it comes to school, students who miss school...miss out. Attendance boosts student achievement, improves the quality of your child's educational experience, and it prepares them for college, good careers, and successful adulthood. Studies show that over an adult's working life, high school graduates can expect to earn, on average, $1.2 million.**
Being in school every day is important. For every day of school missed, it takes two or more days for a student to catch up. Except in the case of illness, many school absences can be avoided with a little extra effort.
Parents, join forces with us to eliminate absences that can be prevented by making every effort to schedule medical and other appointments outside school hours and by making sure your children get plenty of sleep so they arrive at school on time. Give your child every opportunity to succeed in Grand Prairie ISD and graduate to success, by encouraging them to attend school on time, every day. Please remember: Every Child in Every Seat Every Day Counts.
The following are some resources to help you support your child's school attendance.
