Attendance | Battle Creek Public Schools


Student Success

BCPS is focused on making sure that every student attends school every day. Studies show that good attendance is the first step to success, and that poor attendance negatively impacts a student’s ability to learn.

The Challenge 5 Campaign

Our campaign is called “Challenge 5” because we know that students who miss no more than five days of school a year have a better chance of academic success. To spread the word, we are asking our community to take action. Absences add up: if kids aren’t in school, they can’t learn. Too many absences can mean falling behind in school, and can be an early warning sign of dropping out.
