Detroit Public Schools district partnered with Get Schooled and its founding partner Viacom on Detroit Attendance Challenge. Students were asked to attend school and also check in on the website GetSchooled.com. The best attendance won the grand prize which was Big Sean acting as the “Principal for the Day” at the winning school which ended up being Bates Academy.
Big Sean, who attended the Detroit Waldorf School and graduated from Cass Technical High School, visited the Bates Academy Thursday to interact and play games with the students.
Said Big Sean:
“The correlation between success in life and daily attendance in school is inarguable. As a former DPS student, I could not be more proud of the district for taking the issue of attendance seriously.”
