Efforts increase to encourage school attendance
September is School Attendance Awareness Month in Tennessee and the Cocke County School Board has endorsed efforts to improve school attendance locally. Attendance Supervisor Dennis Balch says school attendance is important if a student is to learn. "We are going to try to set up a plan where we can reward those students who attended school every day that month. We reward people for lots of things and so we want to reward students for being in school. If a student is not in school they are not receiving the instruction they need. We want to improve our scores and our communities with a better education." When students do not attend school, the school system loses money because state funding is based on the daily number of students who are in school.
