We're here to support you and your family!

The Forest City Regional School District strives to provide students with the ability to graduate prepared for post-secondary learning, career, or service. To be able to do that, attendance matters and we need your help! Each minute of the school day provides opportunities for academic, social, and emotional development, making it crucial that students miss as little time as possible.


We recognize there are more challenges this year with the pandemic and virtual or hybrid learning. However, we must work together to truly ensure your child is successful here at FCRES! We are here to support you and your child; therefore, please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns that may be barriers to your child regularly attending school. Help your child be GRRREAT by encouraging regular attendance!

Incentives for Attendance!

To align with our School-Wide Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) program, wherein we emphasize prevention, instruction, and data-based decision making to reduce problem behaviors and improve academic performance, we have developed the plan above to address truancy and improve attendance throughout our school! All eligible students, which include those who have 98% attendance or better, as well as those who improve their attendance by no longer being considered truant, will receive PRIDE points in their PBIS rewards account, as well as recognition! In addition, we want to reward both students AND families. Therefore, eligible students and their parents will be entered into a raffle drawing to win a $20 gift card from our reward list (see below)!


During the following time frames, we will run new attendance reports to determine eligibility for the raffles and to provide everyone with several opportunities to enter:


  • 9/14 - 1/29: Students & their parents with 98% attendance up to this point in the school year will be entered into a drawing for a gift card!


  • 2/1 - 3/16: Students & their parents with 98% attendance from the mid to end of trimester + students & their parents who are no longer considered truant during this time will be entered into a drawing for a gift card!


  • 3/17 - 4/29: Students & their parents with 98% attendance from the mid to end of trimester + students & their parents who are no longer considered truant during this time will be entered into a drawing for a gift card!


  • 4/30 - 6/9: Students & their parents with 98% attendance from the mid to end of trimester + students & their parents who are no longer considered truant during this time will be entered into a drawing for a gift card!


Families will stay in the drawing, earning more "chances" every time their child makes the attendance 98% list or the improvement list!

When attendance is prioritized by parents AND students, our Foresters are set up for success! Therefore, we will be drawing a reward for parents AND students during the 30 day increments.
