Attendance Works and Healthy Schools Campaign have partnered to develop the “Mapping The Early Attendance Gap.” This report shows how disparities in school attendance rates — starting as early as preschool and kindergarten — are contributing to achievement gaps and high school dropout rates across the country.

The report also highlights the connection between health and attendance, and the power of states to tackle absenteeism by tapping key champions, leveraging data, and learning from places that have improved attendance despite challenging conditions.
