Using Data to Drive Action:
Portraits of Chronic Absence
11 am - 12:30 pm
The imminent release of the first national data on chronic absence from the Office of Civil Rights offers educators and local leaders an unprecedented opportunity to explore in detail (by district, by school and by student sub-groups) the national picture of how many students are at academic risk due to missing too many days of school.
What can we learn from states and communities that are already using their local chronic absence data to raise awareness about the impact of absences on student achievement? Join the partners in the Attendance Awareness Campaign as we focus on how state and local innovators, such as the ones in Mississippi, New Jersey and Oregon are already using chronic absence analyses to galvanize action to reduce chronic absence.
In addition, Attendance Works will preview upgrades to its free District and School Attendance Tracking Tools.
