The Greenburgh-Graham School District promotes perfect school attendance. Our initiative “Every Student, Every Day” is our way of ensuring that students come to school daily. Being in school, leads to succeeding in school. Chronic absenteeism is most detrimental factor that prevents students from succeeding. Student attendance impacts achievement, high school graduation, and college attainment rates all of which affect economic productivity and social progress.
