The purpose of this study was to determine if parent communication and involvement have an impact on attendance of kindergarten students and their families to daily school and school events. The measurement tools were PowerSchool to track student attendance and a checklist for students whose parents checked off their weekly reading logs, homework packets, and if communication was made with the parents. During the study there were no statistically significant findings. Research in this area should continue as there is very little information and research available regarding the connection between parent communication and involvement on student attendance.
