America's Promise #PromiseChat: Working Together to Reduce Chronic Absence

Thursday, August 17, 2017
3-4 PM ET

Join America’s Promise Alliance, Attendance Works, and Everyone Graduates Center for an interactive Twitter chat on what schools and communities can do to reduce chronic absence this school year.

Nationally, an estimated 6.8 – 7 million students are at risk academically each year because they are chronically absent—missing 10 percent or more of school days due to absence for any reason—excused, unexcused and suspensions. Engage with us online as we prepare for Attendance Awareness Month in September and discuss best practices, resources and highlight ways to identify warning signs of chronic absenteeism.

Use #PromiseChat  and #SchoolEveryDay to follow and engage during the conversation!
