Truancy/Attendance

Chronic Absenteeism

Chronic Absence is a combination of factors that include school, family, and community. Improving student attendance is essential for ensuring our students are on track to learn and succeed.

While addressing some attendance barriers, such a health, poor transportation, and unstable housing, can require long term strategies. Through positive messaging, everyone can make a difference by helping students and families understand that going to school every day and avoiding absences whenever possible is critical to realizing success in school and in life
