What is the Be Present! Attendance Challenge?
Bristol Tennessee City Schools has launched a completely original (and insane) attendance challenge to educate and motivate students and parents to establish and meet attendance goals!

What are the challenge dates?
Challenge Day 1: Thursday, January 24
Challenge Day 2: Friday, February 22
Challenge Day 3: Thursday, March 28
Challenge Day 4: Friday, May 10

How is the winning school determined?
On each of the four dates above, one school will be recognized for the largest percentage increase in attendance. The percentage increase of each school will be calculated by comparing the school’s attendance rate on the challenge day with the attendance rate on the same day of the previous year. The school with the largest increase will be the WINNER!

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

Community Partners
