CLEVELAND — During the 2017-2018 school year, more than 260,000 of Ohio’s K-12 students missed 10 percent of the school year and were chronically absent, but the Cleveland Browns are looking to change that.

On Friday, the Cleveland Browns Foundation partnered with the Ohio Department of Education and Proving Ground to launch “Get 2 School, Stay in the Game!”—a statewide program intended to teach kids the importance of school attendance and help to end to chronic absenteeism.

“The equation is quite simple,” said Cleveland Browns Owner Dee Haslam. “The more a student attends school, the more prepared they are for future success beyond the classroom.”

The program aims to tackle attendance issues using a peer-to-peer learning and action network.

All Ohio school districts are able to join the network at no cost. Network members will receive access to attendance-related supports, tools and campaign materials given to them by the Get 2 School program.

Using the resources, districts will be able to develop attendance-improving solutions that they can share with other districts in the network.
