High Attendance Day in Christian County scheduled for Wednesday, September 20

Wednesday, September 20 is designated as High Attendance Day for each school in the state of Kentucky. High Attendance Day emphasizes the importance of class time for students in Christian County.

Regular attendance is essential for success in school. By attending class regularly, a student is more likely to keep up with the daily lessons and assignments, and achieve academic performance benchmarks on time. Research reflects that a child’s attendance record is one of the strongest single predictors of their academic success.

Students with irregular attendance may not develop the responsibility, self- discipline and effective work skills that are essential for success in school and life. They tend to fall behind and are continuously struggling to catch up. This diminishes their confidence and attitude toward learning. Students who accumulate unexcused absence events may be petitioned to the court system to address truancy.

“In order for students to learn and achieve at a high level, students must be in class,” says Melanie Barrett, Director of Pupil Personnel. “Students and parents share the responsibility of school attendance. Parents can help by instilling the habit of attending school every day at an early age and by staying interested in that their child is doing in school from day one all the way through graduation.”

Each parent and/or guardian of a student enrolled in the Christian County School System is assigned a login to the district’s Infinite Campus Parent Portal feature. The Parent Portal allows parents and guardians to stay involved by monitoring their child’s progress in school, as well as access to their child’s attendance record in school. For Parent Portal login credentials, please contact your child’s school. For more information, please contact your child’s school.
