The Get Schooled Foundation announced last month that Will C. Wood Middle School is the Sacramento regional winner of the Get Schooled Graduate for Más Attendance Challenge.
As a prize, the school will receive a $5,000 award and a school-wide celebration event.
Get Schooled is a national initiative in partnership with the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens. The Graduate for Más Attendance Challenge is aimed at helping schools improve attendance, reducing drop-outs and encouraging students to go to college.
Ten schools accepted the challenge which began on October 7 and ended on December 13. Hiram Johnson High School placed second and will receive $1,000. All other schools will receive $100.
