MPS students sign attendance pledge as part of new campaign to keep kids in class
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Public Schools is kicking off an attendance campaign.
Students, staff, and district officials met Wednesday morning outside Bradley Tech High School. The campaign called Attend Today, Achieve Tomorrow emphasizes the importance of going to school, on-time, every day.
Superintendent Keith Posley spoke directly to students, telling them that in order to do well, they have to be in class.
"We want all of our students to reach high, to dream big, there are great things ahead of you, but in order to get there you must be in school every single day," said Dr. Keith Posley, MPS Interim Superintendent.
At the event, students took and signed an attendance pledge as part of the initiative.
