Visit the interactive map, Chronic Absence: School and Community Factors.


Reducing chronic absence and developing conditions for learning are instrumental to improving outcomes for students and can be improved through policy reform and leadership. Schools and educators have the power to improve both student attendance and conditions for learning.

This Hamilton Project at Brookings interactive map shows rates of chronic absence along with relevant school and community factors for every school in the country. You can search by zip code or school name; click on schools to discover more information. By gradespan, schools with lower rates of chronic absence are shown in yellow and schools with the highest rates of chronic absence are shown in red.
