Every Minute Matters
A campaign to boost student attendance

Solano COE attendance logo

VUSD is partnering with the Solano County Office of Education to address chronic student absenteeism. The Every Minute Matters campaign seeks to educate families about the critical role they play in getting children to school on time every day. Better attendance in early grades leads to better reading performance, which leads to a higher likelihood to graduate from high school. 
See the Every Minute Matters Toolkit, and read the letter from Jay Speck, Solano County Superintendent of Schools.
