Our mission is to advance student success and help close equity gaps by reducing chronic absence. Attendance work apple logo

Broadly defined, chronic absence is missing so much school for any reason that a student is at risk of not reading in the early grades, failing middle school classes and dropping out of high school. Chronic absence data is best used for positive problem solving and early intervention rather than punitive action.
