Chronic absenteeism is largely defined as missing more than 10% of days in the school year — roughly 15 days a year or 3 days a month. There is growing evidence that absenteeism is associated with depression, social anxiety, stress, trauma, and other challenges in school and/or at home and can even be a reason for suicidal thoughts and self-harm in young people.
Listen to our On-Demand webinar and learn how to reduce absenteeism and keep your student safe with a new Attendance & At-Risk program from TrueCare.
TrueCare’s Attendance & At-Risk Program works to build awareness of these factors through their attendance management and communication suite. It streamlines how parents notify the school of their children’s absences and aggregates real-time attendance data so that it can be cross-checked with other systems. This reporting tool can help teachers and school counselors identify and aid at-risk students.
