Absenteeism

Did You Know?
  • Students who attend school regularly are more likely to graduate and find good jobs. In fact, a high school graduate makes on average $1 million more than a dropout over a lifetime.
  • A student who misses 10 days or more during a school year is 20 percent less likely to graduate from high school and 25 percent less likely to ever enroll in college.
  • Chronic absence can affect a student's ability to earn a living. Dropouts are less likely to succeed in a career, and even those who do graduate will not do well at work without good attendance habits. 
  • A student is chronically absent if he or she misses as few as two days of school a month.
              2 DAYS PER MONTH X 9 MONTHS = CHRONIC ABSENCE
