September is the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction’s (OSPI) Attendance Awareness Month. As schools begin across the state, OSPI is raising awareness about the importance of regular school attendance.
Students miss school for many reasons including illness, lack of transportation, work, homelessness, and family responsibilities. Families understand the importance of education, however, they may not realize how quickly absences from school can add up. Schools, families, and communities can work together to improve attendance and support the needs of families and students.
The Commission worked with OSPI to ensure information on Attendance Awareness Month was translated into Asian and Pacific Islander languages. Below are all of the available translations:
Chinese (Traditional) | Chuukese | Fijian | Khmer | Korean | Marshallese | Punjabi | Russian | Samoan | Somali | Spanish | Tagalog | Tongan | Vietnamese
