An Ohio school is paying students for regular attendance

CINCINNATI, OH - Are your kids tired of going to school?

Would they go if someone paid them?

That's what's happening at a school in Ohio.

Last year only 84% of students at Dohn Community High School showed up on a regular basis.

So the principle decided to try something new.

He has teamed up with private donors to offer students cash for coming to class.

Seniors who arrive on time five days a week, and behave well, get $25 every Friday.

Underclassmen get $10.

Every time a student gets paid an extra $5 is put into a savings account for them.

Students can only redeem that money after they graduate.
