SACRAMENTO – Millions of children throughout California head back to school this month. Well-informed, engaged parents make a vital difference in helping students and schools succeed. When families, schools and communities work as partners, student achievement is boosted and children are better prepared to lead happy and productive lives. As the 2014-15 school year approaches, California State PTA shares six key tips all parents need to know this back-to-school season.

1. It starts with attendance.
Children need to be in school to learn – it’s that simple. If children don’t show up for school every day, they miss out on developing fundamental skills. Data shows children who are chronically absent in kindergarten and first grade are far less likely to read proficiently at the end of third grade. Parents and families are essential partners in making sure students attend school, and play a key role in identifying the barriers to attendance as well as what motivates students to go to school. For more information on the importance of school attendance, check out the new toolkit from Attendance Works. (more…)
