Children can only succeed when they regularly attend school. Yet a staggering 125,000 New Jersey K-12 students were “chronically absent” in the 2013-2014 school year—many of whom were very young students or in their high school years. ACNJ’s report highlights statewide data, identifies causes that lead to student absences, provides recommendations for schools and families and identifies districts, by county that are struggling with high student absences.
