Superintendent Danny Adkins announces that Tuesday, September 17 is State High Attendance Day in Kentucky.


Elementary, middle, and high schools compete in small school or large school categories and awards are determined statewide based on each individual school’s performance on State High Attendance Day. The school in each category with the highest percentage attendance for that day will receive $500. If elementary or middle schools tie on the day of competition, the schools’ attendance on the previous day breaks the tie.


Adkins comments, “One of our goals is for the district to have 95.5% attendance or higher every day and this is a goal because when students aren’t in school, they lose out on opportunities to learn. To have the best education, you have to be here. We want our students to see how important being here and being on time is. This soft skill is something that will greatly benefit them in their education and in their careers. Part of being ready for opportunities after they leave Floyd County Schools means that our students are ready to show up and show up on time.”

Adkins ended his comments on State High Attendance Day saying, “We want to see Floyd County have the top in all levels on High Attendance Day and every day. We need our students, our families and our community members to join us in making attendance in school a priority. Why? Our goal is to graduate students who will be successful in their lives. Whether you want to go to the military, begin work after high school or begin a path to more education, regular attendance is crucial. State High Attendance Day is just a great chance to remind everyone about the importance of this fundamental life skill.”
