The Reporter Editorial: School attendance must be a communitywide commitment

As Solano County public school students return to the classroom on Monday, they and their parents may notice new signs on hallway walls or handouts coming home, describing the importance of good attendance.

The School Attendance: Every Minute Matters campaign launched by the Solano County Office of Education isn’t just targeting teenage truants or those with unexcused absences — although they need to hear the message, too.

This awareness effort is aimed at parents at the kindergarten and elementary school level, where attendance patterns are formed.
