What can we learn from states and communities that are already using their local chronic absence data to raise awareness about the impact of absences on student achievement? That was the topic of yesterday’s webinar, Using Data to Drive Action: Portraits of Chronic Absence (organized by Attendance Works).

ACNJ’s Cynthia Rice along with other partners in the Attendance Awareness Campaign presented powerful examples of what it means to respond positively and proactively using data.
