The Importance of School Attendance
School attendance is important because it underscores the significance of learning and the importance of obtaining an education. In addition, a focus on regular attendance helps students develop good work habits that will carry over in life. Good attendance also correlates strongly with improved grades. The responsibility of school attendance is that of both parents and students. By state law, attendance in a public school, private school, or home school program is required for children between their sixth and sixteenth birthdays.
