Every Day Counts



Every Day Counts in a child’s education. Every day a student misses school, he or she gets more than two days behind his peers, because he or she must make up missed lessons and catch up with new lessons at the same time. Regular and punctual attendance will help increase student academic growth. California Education Code Section 46010 states that the only valid reasons for absences from school are:

  1. Illness or injury to the child
  2. Quarantine of the home by a health official
  3. Doctor or dentist’s appointments that can only be scheduled during school hours.
  4. Attendance at funeral services for immediate family.

School districts NO longer receive funding from the State of California for students who are absent from school. This includes ALL absences, even those related to illness, medical/dental appointments. In other words, schools will receive state funding only for students who are in their seats for that day. Please be sure to assist your child in maintaining exemplary attendance to insure the best possible education for him/her, as well as maximum state funding for student attendance. Even if a student attended school part of the day we could still receive income for that student ($35-$40 a day per child). We kindly ask you to be sure your child only stays home when it’s absolutely necessary.

We know you want the very best education for your child, and we do too. Thank you for understanding that Every Day Counts, together we can give your child the very best education.
