Every Day Counts! Good Neighbor Checklist

Here are the top four things YOU can do to make a real difference:

  • Engage Your Community. Reach out to your networks – your neighbors, congregations, and customers – to provide support and encourage families and students to make attendance a priority.
  • Share Your Every Day Counts! Story. Use #EveryDayCounts on social media to share the importance of attending school every day.
  • Show A Student You Care. It just takes one person to make a difference. Develop a relationship with a young person in your community, and check-in with them to make sure they are making every day count in school.
  • Be Your Neighbor’s Back-Up Plan. If your neighbor has something urgent come up, offer to provide back-up support if needed.
