8 ways to prevent chronic absenteeism
from Education DIVE
From July 26:
While it may seem like common sense that students have to be in school to learn, chronic absenteeism persists in K-12 schools, impacting as many as 7.5 million children a year. Students who are chronically absent — meaning they miss 10 percent or more of the school year — are at serious risk of falling behind in school. While chronic absenteeism rates are highest in high school, the problem occurs at every grade level. In the early grades, poor attendance can delay social and emotional learning.
