Did you know that two or more days of school absence per month can directly lead to student achievement gaps, along with increased percentages for high school dropout rates, health concerns, and even bullying? Consistent school attendance is important and has been proven to have a long-lasting impact well past school age. With September as attendance awareness month, Port Huron schools are teaming up with ebw.tv to host a live event Wednesday, September 26 to discuss with several education professionals the challenges students face when it comes to attendance and how the community can support students. Tune into Facebook LIVE at 7 p.m. to ask questions, gain insight and learn more about this important topic in St. Clair County. For more information on the event, go to ebw.tv/goinglive.
