Assemblymember Weber Recognizes Students with School Year Perfect Attendance at SeaWorld

Wednesday, July 6, 2016

(San Diego, CA)- Assemblymember Dr. Shirley N. Weber (D-79AD) recognized more than 350 students of the 79th Assembly District for their perfect attendance during the 2015-2016 school year. The event was held at SeaWorld on Friday, June 24, 2016. This was the second recognition ceremony resulting from Assemblymember Weber’s perfect school attendance challenge. The challenge was to encourage state and local action to improve the overall health, safety, and well-being of students, to encourage and improve school attendance and combat chronic absenteeism. She hopes to spread this recognition of student and parent achievement to Assembly Districts across San Diego, and all of California. Dr. Weber authored legislation making September “School Attendance Awareness Month,” which was signed into law by Governor Brown in 2014. Learn more in the Assembly Access video.
