The Dayton Public School District and the Northwest Dayton Partnership are proud to announce new attendance incentives for students in four schools located in Northwest Dayton. Attendance is directly connected with student achievement.
The four schools include Fairview Elementary School, Edwin Joel Brown Middle School, Wogaman Middle School, and Thurgood Marshall STEM High School.
Beginning February 28, 2022, students at these schools will receive a $25 gift card every two weeks if they have perfect attendance and no office referrals.
In addition, a new after-school incentive program will begin at Wogaman Middle School and Thurgood Marshall STEM High School. Students who have perfect attendance in the new after-school programs, and who have perfect attendance at school, will receive an additional $25 gift card every two weeks. The after-school programs will begin on February 28th.
NOTE: Fairview Elementary and Edwin Joel Brown Middle School already have after-school programs in place and will not participate in the after-school incentive program.
In total, students at Wogaman and Thurgood Marshall have the opportunity to earn $100 in gift cards each month. Students at Fairview and Edwin Joel Brown will participate in the regular school incentive program and will be eligible for up to $50 in gift cards each month.
In addition, every parent or legal guardian of students in these schools who meet the attendance/behavioral requirement for the entire month will receive a $40 gift card.
The purpose of these incentives is to explore whether enhanced student engagement, along with parent support, will improve academic and behavioral outcomes. If this proves to be successful, the incentives may be expanded to other schools in the future.
Gift cards for both students and parents will be issued at the beginning of each month.
Funding for the gift cards is provided by Learn to Earn Dayton.
