September may be Attendance Awareness Month, but the Del Mar Union School District has already placed a special emphasis on attendance this year. The district has rolled out a new slogan, “In school, on time, every day,” a message it is sending out to all school families and one that appears on banners on all campuses.
“We don’t want to let it drop and just be a September thing,” said Cara Schukoske, director of pupil services. “Our principals have committed to collecting information and to make recommendations to be consistent in the ways we’re promoting good attendance…We want students to be in class learning as much as possible.”
For nearly 15 years, the neighboring coastal cities have been working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to plan the project, which recently received a recommendation for approval from the assistant secretary of the Army.
