Attendance is monitored daily to address early, students who are in jeopardy of accumulating six or more unexcused absences.

Across the country, more than 8 million students are missing so many days of school that they are academically at risk. Chronic absence — missing 10 percent or more of school days due to absence for any reason—excused, unexcused absences and suspensions, can translate into third-graders unable to master reading, sixth-graders failing subjects and ninth-graders dropping out of high school. Visit AttendanceWorks.org for more information.
