Jackson Elementary School fourth-grader Dinealya Edwards presents her teacher, Sasha Simons, with a treat bag to recognize Simons' perfect attendance during the month of October. Simons was one of many East Feliciana Public Schools teachers to receive recognition for perfect attendance. 

East Feliciana Public Schools is implementing a districtwide attendance campaign for students and school staff for the 2017-18 school year.

This campaign began in August and will continue through May. The goal of the Attendance Campaign is to create districtwide and community awareness regarding the importance of attending school every day, a news release said.

The district has partnered with Johns Hopkins University School of Education Talent Development, who will be assisting with data collection and meeting with district staff to plan for incentives and recognition events.
