Attendance Matters Day 2018
The Los Angeles Unified School District will be hosting its 10th year of LAUSD conducting home visits, phone banking and community canvassing. Attendance Matters Day (AMD), formerly called Student Recovery Day, will be held on Friday, September 7, 2018. The purpose of Attendance Matters Day is to celebrate our students who attend school every day, to make a concerted effort to identify students who are chronically absent or at risk of dropping-out, and to re-enroll those who have left our schools.
LAUSD Local District and school staff will join forces with community partners across the District. Under the leadership of Pupil Services staff, and with the assistance of 390 volunteers, last year’s event was a huge success with over 1,500 families were contacted. In addition, the team made 911 phone calls, conducted 606 home visits, and outreached 315 local businesses in a single day.
Attendance Matters Day is an opportunity for schools to receive additional district and community support for their work with at-risk student populations. All LAUSD staff are welcomed to volunteer for this all day event. Please be sure to register early, as the number of volunteers will be limited to 40 persons per school. If you have any questions regarding Attendance Matters Day, please contact Pupil Services at (213) 241-3844.
