Attendance Matters

I have a subscription to the ISFIS data service that allows comparisons between all kinds of Iowa school data.  Was very interested in the comparison of school districts reading scores compared to their average daily attendance:


The upward slope of that trend line indicates a predictable and significant correlation between higher attendance rates and better reading scores.  This shows 8th grade, but its is consistent across all grades, getting more significant as the years go on.  Getting your kids to school does matter to their success.
