Missing School = Missing Out


    Missed school days are missed opportunities to learn.

    Students who miss an average of 2 days a month are less likely to:

    • Read on grade level by 3rd grade
    • Pass STAAR tests in middle school
    • Stay on track for graduation in high school

    Chronic absenteeism is a better predictor of whether a student will drop out before graduation than test scores.
