Attendance Matters Toolkit for Schools

We believe that youth success in school leads to better communities. In 2011, we formed Attendance Matters!® -- a partnership between the school districts, businesses, and parents in the region to reduce absences and increase the success of our youth.

Attendance Matters!® is registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Use of the service mark must be approved by United Way of Benton & Franklin Counties.
