Welcome to our attendance home page. Sherman ISD wants to make showing up – attending school each day and on time – one of our district success stories! We know that showing up each day for school is critical for the academic success of our students. It implies more than just attending school, it represents responsibility and commitment, as well as a work ethic. We have to make every day count for our students, and we know that only happens if our kids are in our classrooms and our parents are involved. A wealth of information can be found throughout this webpage, in our Student Handbook, and through any of our campus administrators or attendance clerks. We encourage you to review our district's attendance policy and we thank you for your continued support in this partnership of #BuildingBearcats.
Attendance is one of the biggest indicators of school success. Students who attend school regularly are naturally exposed to more than those who are routinely absent. Furthermore, absences can quickly add up. A student who misses an average of twelve days a year from kindergarten through twelfth grade will miss 156 days of school which nearly translates to an entire year. Schools must do everything within their limited power to compel parents to get their children to school. Please click here for additional resouces.
