Improving School Attendance ITP
Alignment Bay County’s Elementary A-Team is inviting businesses, community organizations and media partners from Bay County to participate in an awareness campaign aimed at improving school attendance. According to data from Bay District Schools, approximately 3,200 students are absent for 21 or more days in a single school year. Research shows that missing 10 percent of the school (or about 18 days) negatively affects a student’s academic performance.
The collective impact process of Alignment Bay County relies on the collaboration of community stakeholders in aligning existing resources to address targeted issues. Perhaps your media organization can provide coverage or donate public service announcements. Maybe your church is willing to distribute information to families, or your business is willing to post printed materials to raise awareness. If you, your organization or your business can help us positively impact school attendance, contact us today!
