Student attendance has been good for the first half of the school year and a total of 268 students system wide have had perfect attendance.

Clay Farler, Attendance Supervisor for the DeKalb County School System says the attendance numbers have been impressive. "Part of my role each year is to keep up with the attendance of students in the county and to report that to the state. Perfect attendance means no missed days, no tardies, and no leave earlies for the year. We've had 82 full days of school (as of Monday) and there are 94 days of school left in the year (as of Monday)."

The attendance rates at each school and the number of students with perfect attendance at each grade level are as follows:

DeKalb West School:

Farler says "I want to commend all the students, their parents, and their schools for this accomplishment. Of course, we encourage students to be in school everyday and on time and stay for the full day. For us, to be almost half way through the school year and have this many students who have not missed any school is really good."
