Attendance Awareness: Let's Knock Attendance Out of the Park

School attendance remains a priority for Prince George’s County Public Schools. Our goal is for every student to attend instruction (virtual or in-person) every day and on time. Regular school attendance ensures access to a high-quality education and has a major impact on student success from kindergarten through high school.

In an effort to improve chronic absenteeism rates across schools, PGCPS has teamed up with Texas Roadhouse to launch a systemwide competition, Let’s Knock Attendance Out of the Park.

Schools will be divided into the following teams:

Team A: All Elementary Schools
Team B: All Middle Schools
Team C: All High Schools
Team D: K-8 Schools, Specialty Schools, Charter Schools
Team E: Montessori, Early Childhood, Regional Schools


For Quarter 1, schools with the lowest chronic absenteeism rate from each team will receive a congratulatory banner. For Quarter 2, Quarter 3 and Quarter 4, schools with the most improved chronic absenteeism rate and lowest chronic absenteeism rate from each team will receive a congratulatory banner.

Additionally, Texas Roadhouse will provide coupons to the lowest chronic absenteeism rate winners from each team for Quarter 1 and most improved chronic absenteeism rate winners from each team for Quarter 2, Quarter 3 and Quarter 4.
