September is Attendance Awareness Month in Jeffco  



Here is the reality:        

Chronic absenteeism is on the rise. Chronic absenteeism means missing 10% or more of total enrolled school days for the school year, for any reason.  The national average is 25% of students are chronically absent, up from 15% pre-pandemic. Colorado has the 6th highest absenteeism at 36% with the Jeffco chronic absenteeism rate at 26%.

Dakota Ridge’s chronic absenteeism is approximately 11%.


More facts:

  •  Half of the students who miss 2-4 days in September go on to miss nearly a month of school.
  • Research shows that missing 10% of school or about 18 days, negatively impacts a student’s academic performance.
  • By 6th grade, chronic absence is a leading indicator that a student will dropout of high school.

We need all students in school to learn, to participate, and be an active member of our thriving community. Do not hesitate to contact your child’s administrator or counselor for support. We are here for you.
