Los Angeles Gives Cars, iPads, Cash to Student Winners of ‘Attendance Challenge’

Los Angeles Unified School District

Aren’t these kids going to be devastated when they find out the only thing you get for showing up for work every day is the privilege to show up again tomorrow!

A certificate used to be enough for students with perfect attendance at the end of the school year. But in the Los Angeles Unified School District, two perfect attendees throughout high school received new Chevrolet Sonics, priced at $18,000, for showing up to school every day. During the 2012-2013 school year, LAUSD has handed out monthly prizes to kids who were present every day; the awards were presented by local donor companies, including Knott’s Berry Farm and Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach.

Five elementary students also will receive iPads for winning the so-called Attendance Challenge, and six campuses will receive cash prizes of $3,000 to create programs to encourage attendance.
