Attend to Win! Count Day & Beyond Attendance Incentive

 attend to win

Daily attendance improves student performance and – especially during the pandemic – allows us to maintain social-emotional connections with classmates and teachers that truly helps students’ mental wellbeing. Learning can be fun every day, especially when showing up can mean winning great prizes. 

To encourage engagement and daily attendance beginning on Count Day, Wednesday, February 10, 2021, Detroit Public Schools Community District (DPSCD) is offering special incentives for student attendance beginning on Count Day and continuing through Tuesday, March 2, 2021. This includes:

  • Special Teams backgrounds for all students that attend on Count Day, February 10, 2021
  • Free food vouchers for the school with the most improved attendance the week of February 10 - 23
  • Grand Prize! Chance to win one of ten brand new gaming consoles - PlayStation 5 (PS5) or Xbox X!
