Perfectly Punctual Campaign
School Readiness to Job Readiness
Attendance is a Critical Life Skill
LearnLead’s Perfectly Punctual Campaign (PPC) is a chronic absence prevention program that supports positive attendance habits from the outset of schooling. PPC uses punctuality, the good news about attendance, positive reinforcement and playfulness to encourage consistent on-time attendance. PPC is now integrated with Attendance Works, the national leader in chronic absence prevention and resolution.
The two-generation program engages children daily in monitoring their own attendance, honors parents monthly for getting their children to school on time and translates attendance data into management information.
The Perfectly Punctual Campaign provides a structure through visibility materials, staff development, Parent Engagement Programs and technical assistance to support intentionality, creativity, and positive reinforcement that promotes on-time attendance as a shared community value.

Routines that Rock is LearnLead’s primary parent engagement and/or family program.Routines for parents helps parents laugh, learn, bond, commiserate and create materials for their children. Routines for families strengthens the cooperation between parents and child that is central to consistent on-time attendance. Workshops start with a discussion about parent or family experiences – the good news and the bad – about getting children up and out in the morning. That leads to a discussion about national and local attendance data assuring that those present grasp the relationship between attendance (access to instructionaltime) and success in school. After brainstorming around strategies parents – or parents and children together create materials or songs and raps to use at home or in the classroom.
Here’s how Plumosa School for the Arts in Delray, Florida interpreted Routines in song.
