Santa Clara County Office of Education’s Early Learning Data Governance and Franklin-McKinley School District in partnership with Attendance Works, invites you to join us to learn about the value of incorporating chronic absence and attendance data as part of a comprehensive, data-informed PreK-12 approach to program improvement.
Starting as early as kindergarten and preschool, chronic absence (missing 10% of school) is a meaningful and actionable data point that can be used to identify students at risk academically, as well as helping preschools or schools struggling to meet the educational, social, and emotional needs of their students and families.
While most states included chronic absenteeism into their ESSA plans’ accountability systems, the use of reporting chronic absences starting in preschool is still emerging.
