Improving Student Attendance

Win a gift card by not missing school!

 

A missed school day is a lost opportunity for students to learn. There is a direct correlation between students who attend school regularly and higher academic achievement levels. In order to reach our Destination 2020 goal on attendance, students can miss no more than 17 days of school per year. This may seem like a lot but it's less than two absences per month!

 

The Anchorage School District has partnered with BP for our 2018 call to action for ASD high school student attendance. Thanks to a generous donation from BP each high school will be giving prizes for students who come to school every day for 10 days throughout the school year. Your child has the opportunity to win $100 gift cards simply for not missing school. Please see the attached Press Release for more information.
