School attendance is vital if the student is to graduate with good certification and qualifications. We have seen reason as to why students miss school; tough subjects, peer pressure, harsh teacher, and boredom. Poor school attendance has been sited as a cause of; school drop out, failing subjects and poor graduates. This can be improved through the motivation by; gifts and incentives like t-shirts, ipods, and cameras, wall of fame pictures,
talks, and punitive measures, certificates, reading and posting names of best attendance. Therefore a part from state and federal measures, parents, teachers, school administration, local authorities and the community at large can help in improving attendance.
