Jeremiah E. Burke High School

J. E. Burke Students Get Motivated!

Get SchooledAbsenteeism and truancy are battles that schools fight every day. But some schools are bringing new tactics to the fight – and seeing the results. On May 24, three students from Jeremiah E. Burke High School in Dorchester, MA were each awarded $1,000 college scholarships for their leadership during a national attendance challenge. The Get Schooled Foundation asked students to step up the Get MotivatED Challenge by boosting their attendance. Seniors at Dorchester’s Jeremiah Burke High School were rewarded for all the hard work they put forth this year.
