Students miss a school day now and then. They get sick, have a doctor’s appointment, or get caught up in a family emergency. These are among common excused absences that don’t usually affect a student’s academic standing. But chronic absenteeism—missing 10% or more of school—is an equity epidemic with short- and long-term impacts on student performance. Each year, almost eight million students are chronically absent for complex reasons.
Join Dr. Todd Rogers and Phyllis Jordan for a panel on implementing evidence-based interventions that make a measurable impact on attendance, and, in turn, student outcomes moving the needle on district-wide goals.
