ATTENDANCE + ENGAGEMENT = SUCCESS
Columbus City Schools and the Columbus Crew have teamed up for a historic partnership to promote the importance of school attendance.
Student success starts with attendance and engaged learning, either in person or remotely. Students who are absent from school miss important learning opportunities, which can be difficult, or even impossible, to make up. The mission of the Stay in the Game! Keep Learning, Every Day Network (the Stay in the Game! Network) is to prioritize attendance by connecting its users to resources aimed at tackling chronic absenteeism.
