Every Student Present -- A Campaign to Reduce Chronic Absence

Every Student Present is a public awareness campaign developed by the Council on Children and Families and is intended to help families, school leaders and communities understand the importance of consistent school attendance and the impact of absences on children's learning, especially young students. The goals of the campaign are to promote awareness of chronic absence and to build capacity among schools, families and communities to reduce it.
