School Attendance/Dropout Prevention

  • Students are more likely to benefit from the academic program offered by a school if they attend school regularly.  Daily school and class attendance not only improve academic performance, but help students develop social skills necessary to become a productive citizen in their community.

    Successful schools begin by engaging students and making sure they come to school regularly.  They work cooperatively with students and parents to make coming to school a positive experience for the student.

    Parents are responsible for student attendance as defined by Florida’s Compulsory School Attendance laws (F.S. 1003.24 and F.S. 1003.21).

    Alachua County Public School Attendance Officers are available to help students and their parent improve school attendance.
