Chronic absenteeism is a key indicator that a student is at risk. These students are less likely to achieve math and literacy proficiency, less likely to graduate from high school, and less likely to enroll in university. COVID-19 creates unique challenges for promoting strong attendance with the most vulnerable students disproportionately impacted by the negative consequences. Join a panel discussion about attendance and addressing chronic absenteeism in the COVID-19 environment and beyond. We’ll discuss behavioral science insights, effective family communication, and data-driven approaches to building a comprehensive attendance solution at the district level.
