Chronic absenteeism is largely defined as missing more than 10% of days in the school year – roughly 15 days a year or three 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.
- More and more studies are exposing links between absenteeism and other severe challenges a student may be facing. However, neither the federal government nor anyone school can cut absenteeism with simple rules because the reasons for chronic absences are so varied and complex.
- This eBook provides practical case studies based on the Nation’s 3 Biggest School Districts’ best practices of Reducing Absenteeism.
