Attendance Profile

Research shows that when education systems, families, communities, and students work together to ensure schools are engaging and welcoming spaces; students stay engaged and absences are reduced. Research also shows that when students attend schools regularly, they have better long- and short-term educational outcomes. As Texas emerges from the pandemic, chronic absence and average absence rates continue to be higher than pre-pandemic rates and preliminary analyses suggest that regular attendance continues to be strongly associated with better short-term academic outcomes for students.
