Over 80% of Irving ISD students are economically disadvantaged. During the winter months, many students who walk to school have to brave the elements. Having a warm coat that keeps them warm will increase the chances that a child will attend school despite the weather. If they do make it to school and recess begins, having a warm coat will help keep them healthy. As schools work diligently to increase the attendance rate, this is one way the the community can be part of the solution!
Impact: Attendance rates during inclement weather will improve. Students will be healthier having the proper outerwear. Families will feel less financial burden with the assistance.
