Research into school attendance
Students who miss too much school,
whether excused or unexcused, suffer academically.
Chronic absenteeism, missing 10% of
the school year, in a previous year is a signal that students
will be chronically absent again the following year.
Reminder: When your child returns to
school from being absent, you have 2 days to send in your
parent notes or doctor excuses.
