Video Playlist: Importance of Regular School Attendance

The Refugee Alliance of Central Iowa, in partnership with West Des Moines Community Schools (WDMCS) and other metro districts, collaborated earlier this year to create multilingual attendance videos as a resource for families. At WDMCS, regular school attendance maximizes student learning and achievement.

The videos are available in a variety of languages, like English, Hakha, Spanish, and Swahili. To watch the video in a different language, click the three-lined icon in the top right. Then, scroll to find the video you would like to watch.
