Attendance Challenge

Thank you for agreeing to participate in the 79th Assembly District’s 2020-2021 Virtual Attendance Challenge! The purpose of this challenge is to inspire and encourage our students and families to make school attendance a priority with the ultimate goal of motivating them to finish school and graduate as we experience a new learning environment during COVID-19. I believe that if students become serious about their attendance, they become better students and have a greater chance of academic success. This commitment will be beneficial to their success in other areas, such as future careers.

How to sign up:

Each school district located in the 79th District is eligible to participate.

School district representatives must contact my District Office to express their interest in officially enrolling in the program at (619) 531-7913 or email LaShae Collins at
