Family Engagement & Attendance
Berrien Springs Public Schools has identified Improving student attendance as one of our main goals for the 2022-2023 school year. Our school district is working with families to share the importance of daily attendance and to address any underlying problems that lead to absenteeism. By building positive relationships and working together as a community, we can focus on reducing absenteeism and keeping kids in our schools.
Family engagement is a collaborative relationship between families, educators, providers, and partners to support and improve every learner's learning, development, and health.
Below are parent resources that can assist you in supporting your child in daily school attendance. Attend Today, Achieve Tomorrow!
