5 Quick Facts

  1. Missing school one day per week means missing one full year of instruction for every five years that they are in school.
  2. Every day a student is absent from class costs AISD $45 in revenue from the state.
  3. Every day a student is absent from class costs AISD $45 in revenue from the state. If we raise the attendance rate by just 1 percent district-wide, it would result in $5.6 million per year in increased state revenue. That's money that goes directly into your child's education.
  4. If AISD had 100% attendance each year, the school district would receive $50-$60 million in additional state funding annually.
  5. A diploma has an economic value! High school graduates earn 38 percent more than those without a diploma, and college graduates earn 140 percent more! By graduating from high school, your child can earn more than a million dollars in their lifetime. That can lead to even greater success if they attend college.

Give your child every opportunity to succeed in AISD by encouraging excellence school attendance.
