• Why is good attendance important for our children?

    • Research shows that students who are chronically absent in kindergarten and first grade are far less likely to read proficiently by third grade.
    • For every missed day of school, it takes up to three days to make up missed learning.
    • By sixth grade, chronic absences indicate a student is at high risk of being a dropout.
    • In ninth grade, chronic absences are a better indicator than test scores of whether a student will graduate. 

    Every minute counts.  We appreciate the efforts that our Travis parents and guardians make to get their children at all grade levels to school each and every day.
