Overcoming Chronic Absenteeism

Students who are chronically absent are at serious risk for low academic success. In addition, students who are chronically absent are less likely to read at grade level, have lower test scores, and have an increased risk of dropping out of school. Learn more about how FPS is working to overcome chronic absenteeism in an effort to better achieve our District mission in this Cabinet Column from FPS Associate Superintendent Dr. Robert Grosz.
