Attendance Strategies
Every Student, Every Day

The Challenge

One in five NYC Public School students is chronically absent. This means that over 200,000 students miss a month or more of school per year. 

Chronically absent students are defined as students who miss more than 18+ days in the previous school year or are currently on track to miss as much (2+ days per month).

2. Organized Resources                                             4. Drawing on Community Partners
