"It tells the students how important it is to be at school, to be on time, and to being in class. So, maybe it can drop down on the skipping rate and hopefully give people motivation to be in school," said Janel Moore, a sophomore at Howard High School.

Throughout the month of September, students have been encouraged to take the 180 day challenge to attend school every day, all day, and on time.
