In School Every Day: Addressing Chronic Absenteeism Among Students Experiencing Homelessness
Attendance Works is a national and state initiative that promotes awareness of the important role that school attendance plays in achieving academic success. Attendance Work's goal is to ensure that every district in the country not only tracks chronic absence data, but also partners with families and community agencies to intervene when attendance is a problem for children or particular schools.
