Attendance has made an improvement from last year.
As of Dec. 9, 80.56% of students have attended school at Fulton Public Schools.
It's lower than state attendance rates, but student attendance is about 6% higher than it was this time last year, said Chris Hubbuch, assistant superintendent at Fulton Public Schools.
The attendance awareness program at Fulton Public Schools has been in progress this school year and the district attendance committee continues to support the attendance awareness campaign.
Fulton School District has been working on an attendance awareness campaign with the goal to have 90 percent of students attending 90 percent of the time. The mission is to foster conditions where students are excited to attend, feel safe and positive at school.
School committees meet weekly throughout the district to monitor attendance during the first 30 days of the school year, Hubbuch said. The committee will meet to review progress on the campaign action plan.
The program aims to achieve consistency across the district.
