Lack of school attendance is a growing problem around the United States of America. As everyone knows, it is not possible for a child to succeed in today’s world without a good education. In Isabella County, we want to do everything that we can to make sure our children are attending school and are getting the best opportunity to succeed in life. Various law enforcement, school, and social services agencies have come together, in a collaborative effort, to strengthen this community’s commitment to the education of our children.
The attendance and the participation of children in an education program sets the foundation for their future. School is a setting for children to develop not only academic skills, but also social skills, positive peer relationship, and athletic achievements, School is one of the key opportunities for the development of self esteem. This opportunity is best served with the combined efforts of the parents, school personnel, and the community agencies.
