Strive For Under 5

Bucks County Attendance Awareness Campaign:





What: A county-wide effort to improve student attendance

Where:  Bristol Township School District

When:  2017-2018 school-year

How: Parents are encouraged to Strive for 5 or Less absences for their children

Why: Studies have shown that students with good attendance have greater academic success. Students missing just 2 days of school per month tend to fall behind academically and find it extremely difficult to recover fully in the classroom. These students are at risk for retention and dropping out.
