- September is Attendance Awareness Month. At WCS we encourage strong attendance every month.

Know the Benefits
- Keep from falling behind in school
Stay on track for graduation
Improve early reading skills
Build self-confidence
Develop healthy life habits

Know the Numbers
Ohio Bill 410 recently changed the way that schools track attendance. We now count hours as opposed to days. Time missed when students are tardy or absent can add up quickly and students miss valuable learning time by missing even a small part of a school day. 

Know the Warning Signs
Learn more about the new WCS attendance policy in your student's school handbook, and read our flyer and FAQ's for more information on our attendance expectations.
