Abstract

ABSTRACT

Chronic absenteeism has been identified as a problem of practice at Lizana Elementary School. Student absenteeism has created issues due to students missing instructional minutes and important social interactions. Additionally, funding has been decreased due to funding being calculated based on daily attendance rates. The purpose of this project is two-fold. First, the project will aim to identify factors that contributed to chronic absenteeism to improve student attendance. Teacher input will then be used to identify incentives and interventions that can be used to decrease student absenteeism rates.
