In September we celebrate Attendance Awareness Month because we know that students who miss 2-4 days of school in September are much more likely to be chronically absent over the course of the year than students who miss fewer than 2 days of school in September. Early intervention is key!
Did you know that in the 2013-14 school-year, more than 1 in 7 students were chronically absent (missed more than 18 days of school)? Nationally, that’s over 7 million students. We can do better. Here are some tools and interventions to help keep students in school.
