The Every Day Counts Attendance Challenge (EDCAC) is aimed at eliminating chronic absenteeism by raising awareness, using external motivation (ie. incentives) to improve the attendance rates of K-12 youth.
WHY DOES EVERY DAY COUNT?
Being present in class helps students enjoy success in their adults lives, from graduation to employment and beyond. Simply put – when students miss school, they lose valuable learning time. The purpose of EDCAC is to raise awareness and generate excitement for attending school by providing cash grants to students and their families.
