Poster contest pushes school attendance – Daily Republic

By Susan Hiland

The Solano County Office of Education is kicking off a countywide poster contest to help spread the word about the role that school attendance has on student achievement.

Students will be given the chance to create a poster with messages that will focus on the importance of regular school attendance – and could win prizes for their efforts.

Chronic absenteeism is a red alert that students are headed for academic trouble, the county education office said in a press release announcing the poster contest. Research shows that chronically absent students are less likely to succeed academically and are more likely to be suspended and eventually dropout.
