What is the Be Present! Attendance Challenge?
In January of 2019, Bristol Tennessee City Schools launched a completely original (and insane) attendance challenge to educate and motivate students and parents to establish and meet attendance goals! In February 2020, the second Be Present! Attendance Challenge kicked off!

What are the spring 2020 challenge dates?
Challenge Day 1: Friday, March 6
Challenge Day 2: Friday, March 27
Challenge Day 3: Tuesday, April 7

How is the winning school determined?
On each of the three dates above, one school is recognized for the largest percentage increase in attendance for the previous two-week period. The percentage increase of each school is calculated by comparing the school’s attendance rate during the two-week challenge period with the attendance rate of the same two-week period of the previous year. The school with the largest increase is the WINNER!

What happens when the Be Present! Prize Patrol shows up at a school?
A par-tay! The Be Present! Prize Patrol bus arrives packed with prizes, of course, a "surprise" celebrity, and other local dignitaries. With loud fanfare, students and teachers are called to an assembly where the school is recognized for their accomplishments and presented with a $100 award. The best part ... ALL STUDENTS receive a prize from The Prize Patrol!

Community Partners
The Be Present! Attendance Challenge is a true community effort. Numerous businesses generously donate prizes, promotional space for yard signs and marquee messages, and other support for this important initiative. 

Special thanks to the following Bristol Tennessee City Schools departments: Coordinated School Health, Family Resource Center, School Nutrition, and Transportation.
