    have in your class each day. I am doing a presentation about how important attendance is. Also about why students need to show up on time. It does not matter what grade you teach. I am doing elementary, middle and high school stats. Thank you guys so much. I am a new attendance social worker and I would like to collect info to pass out to parents during attendance meetings as well. :)
