Every Student, Every Day: A National Initiative to Address and Eliminate Chronic Absenteeism

A student who misses just two days of school each month — 18 days total in the year — is considered to be chronically absent. In the United States, more than 6 million children are chronically absent from school each year. Students who are chronically absent are more likely to fall behind in reading and less likely to graduate. Even when excused, absences add up and can greatly impact a child’s education. To combat chronic absenteeism, the U.S. Department of Education, the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, and the Ad Council have partnered to provide information and resources to schools, organizations, and families. Check the website, AbsencesAddUp.org, for information and resources to help ensure children attend school each day.
