Chronic Absences

Too many absences, excused or unexcused, can keep students from succeeding in school and in life. How many are too many? 10% of the school year—that’s 18 missed days or 2 days a month—can knock students off track and put them behind. Leaving early on a Wednesday, even though it's the early release day can negatively impact your child's education. Students who miss too much school score lower on tests in every state and city tested. Chronic absence affects all kids and not just the absent ones.

September 2019 95.1% 13th out of 17 elementary schools in CCPS

October 2019 94.4% 13th out of 17 elementary schools in CCPS

November 2019 92.9% 13th out of 17 elementary schools in CCPS
