Attendance Works has created this video to explain the problem of chronic absence—its prevalence across the country and its impact on student achievement at every grade level. We also offer solutions that can engage the school and the community in building a culture of good attendance. And we give examples of how communities and school districts are addressing the barriers that keep students from getting to school.
