Chronic absenteeism is defined as missing 10% or more of school and includes both excused and unexcused absences. As we know, attending school regularly is critical to closing the learning gap. Early chronic absenteeism (K-2) has been linked to lower 3rd grade reading levels. In the middle and high school level chronic absenteeism increases the risk for dropping out of school all together.Attendance Information
