School Attendance Takes on New Importance Next Week
Going to school every day is something parents and teachers try to emphasize with their kids, and next week that message will be even more important to Florida schools.
All public school students will be counted, with those numbers going to the state to determine a school district's funding. A student must be at school at least one day that week to be included.
"When they're here on time and they're in the classroom, they have every advantage to learn," said Beverly Edwardss, a counselor at Iydlwild Elementary.
Attendance figures are also sent to the state in February.
