Attendance Matters!


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). 

By adopting the Every Student, Every Day campaign, Community Schools can leverage a robust set of resources to reduce chronic absence.
