Superintendent's Attendance Challenge kicks off in January

Superintendent Sarah Koligian, Ed.D., recently visited with leadershipstudents at secondary schools: Mills, Mitchell, Sutter, Folsom Middle Schools and Cordova, Folsom and Vista del Lago High Schools challenging them to come up with ways to increase student attendance at their schools.

During her visits, students discussed the importance of why showing up to school daily matters and brainstormed ideas of how they can motivate students who are truant or late to show up daily and on time.

The Superintendent's Attendance Challenge will run Jan. 2, 2019 through the end of April 2019. Schools that increase their attendance percentage rate will be awarded money to use towards something the student body feels the school needs. If these schools increase attendance by 1.0-1.5% they can earn $500, 1.6-2.0% they can earn $1,000 and over 2% they can earn $1,500.
