Graphic of reasons why attendance matters, titled, "Attend Today, Achieve Tomorrow,"all content listed in text above

Good school attendance means...Elementary students read well by the end of third grade, middle schoolers pass important courses, high schoolers stay on track for graduation, college students earn their degrees, workers succeed in their jobs. Too many absences, excused or unexcused, can keep students from succeeding in school and in life. How many are too many? 10% of the school year, that's 18 missed days or 2 days a month, can knock students off track. 

//

La buena asistencia en la escuela significa que los estudiantes... primaria leen bien al fin del tercer grado, secundario aprueban cursos importantes, preparatoria permanecen en camino a graduarse, universitario obtienen sus títulos universitarios, el trabajo tienen éxito en sus puestos de trabajo. Demasiadas ausencias, permitidas o no, pueden impedir que los estudiantes tengan éxito en la escuela y en la vida. Cuantas son "demasiadas"? El 10% del año escolar, o sea faltando 19 días (2 días por mes), puede causar que el estudiante se desvié.
