Fullerton School District Helping Students SSOAR
Regular school attendance is a necessary part of the learning process and the means to graduation with a good education. Students who are frequently absent may be putting their future in jeopardy. Regular school attendance is essential for student success in school. It increases the bond students have with their schools, teachers and peers which helps to increase future productivity. Missing school can cause students to fall behind in academics and miss important socialization concepts that enhance their ability to understand and follow directions, or ultimately, plan for the future.
Students in the Fullerton School District are encouraged to participate in SSOAR (Saturday School Opportunity for Attendance Recovery) offered at all 20 schools. SSOAR is held on scheduled Saturdays throughout the school year from 8 a.m. until 12:15 p.m. During SSOAR sessions, students participate in a variety of academic and active activities. This provides students with the opportunity to make up attendance as well as providing the school with the opportunity to recoup funding which is essential to maintaining a high level school. SSOAR is meant to be a fun morning that includes activities like art, dance, coding, cooking, P.E., robotics, science, technology, math, and more. Parents are encouraged to check with their schools for SSOAR opportunities available to them.
