The District Needs Your Help!


On September 4, 2014 the District will join Attendance Works (attendanceworks.org) and the national Call to Action to increase student attendance. This initiative calls on Superintendents and Districts across the country to come together to stem the tide of absenteeism in schools. This effort will require help from everyone in the community including parents, community leaders, the medical community, churches, and civic and service organizations.
