Seattle schools offering kids celebrity wake-up callon October 4, 2011 @ 6:18 am (Updated: 8:32 am - 10/4/11 )
Mayor Mike McGinn says the campaign called, "Be Here Get There", will help your sleepy kids roll out of bed to get school on time.
"You could get a pre-recorded wake up call," says McGinn. "Jamal Crawford, NBA star, has agreed to record one. And we've got other celebrities lined up, so you can get a celebrity wake-up call."
Schools will also be offering prize incentives for students as part of the program.
Research shows that students who miss 20 days of school or more a year have significantly less chances of graduating.
