The general problem is that the rising rate of chronic absenteeism is hindering student achievement. Students that are not regularly present fall behind in instruction and are often unable to recover. This problem transcends regional limitations, grade-level, and socioeconomic status. Over 7 million, or 16% of students are chronically absent from school (Department of Education, 2019).
