The Importance of Good Attendance

The Importance of Good Attendance

Good attendance is one of the most powerful ways to set a student up for success, not only in school, but in work and life beyond K-12.

Missing school days can have a lasting, negative impact on your child

  • Chronic absenteeism in early childhood is linked to a higher likelihood of dropping out of high school and not completing college.
  • Students with good attendance tend to have better social skills, perseverance, and a sense of belonging in the classroom.
  • School budgets depend on attendance. When a high percentage of students fail to regularly attend school, the district loses funding to pay for the innovative and essential learning supplies we want our students to have access to. 

Education is a partnership between your family and the Klein Family of teachers, faculty, and staff. We are dedicated to creating a nurturing and welcoming environment so that our students are motivated to come to school and genuinely enjoy being there. But sometimes, we need your help to promote good attendance. 

Good attendance starts at home

  • Emphasize the importance of education and attendance in your household. 
  • Establish a bedtime and morning routine from the get-go. Habits are formed early.
  • Encourage your student to get involved in extracurricular activities. In Klein ISD, we pride ourselves on our commitment to supporting EVERY student’s passions.
  • If there’s an underlying reason that is causing your student to miss school, please never hesitate to contact your child’s counselor. Open communication is key. 

We care deeply about the well-being and success of EVERY student in Klein ISD, and students must attend school in order to receive the benefits of a high-quality education. When schools and families work together to make good attendance the norm, we can advance student achievement one day at a time. Be sure to check out our Attendance Counts webpage for more Klein ISD-specific attendance information.
