PPC moves to Attendance Works

The Perfectly Punctual Campaign (PPC) is now disseminated through Attendance Works, America’s leading advocate for constructive attendance programs and policies.

This website shares the experience and programs of Learning and Leadership in Families, a non-profit organization active from 1995 – 2015. The goal is to stimulate adaptation, collaboration and/or transfer of lessons learned to further stimulate creativity, school readiness, and the joy of learning among young children and the parents, teachers and community leaders who teach, guide, enjoy and inspire them.

PPC Visibility Materials

Playful bilingual (English-Spanish) materials – scorecards, tallies, buttons, reminder cards and the mascot — “Punctual Pete” — provide a structure for the focus on attendance, support parent and child engagement and reinforces a welcoming school environment. Buttons, scorecards and mascots make consistent on-time attendance a highly visible, child-centered value. Surveys stimulate parents and teachers to think about the impact of consistent on-time attendance on children.

          WHATS A CAMPAIGN WITHOUT A BUTTON? PPC buttons make everyone smile – and – they remind all generations of the importance of on-time attendance. Teachers began allowing children who are on-time to wear their button all day, a salute to their achievement and an honor that nurtures pride in the children. Some school’s prefer to make stickers from the button design. Wristbands, all the vogue now for young children, can also be worn daily and carry the “on-time on target” message.




Students fill out scorecards daily to track punctuality and attendance

The process of monitoring their own progress develops children’s sense of ownership in their attendance behavior.

Bilingual Parent Survey


Surveys at the start of the school year focus adults’ attention on issues of routine and punctuality. Parallel versions for parents and staff  give administrators insights into attitudes and inform planning for workshops for workshops and messaging for children, families, and staff.
