Reducing Young Children's Chronic Absenteeism: How to Maximize Collaboration across Early Childhood Programs


By integrating secondary datasets from the ECDC entities, the goals of this project are (a) to understand children’s patterns of usage in various early childhood service programs from the prenatal period to age five, and (b) to explore how those experiences are related to children’s chronic absenteeism from early childhood through 6th grade. The ECDC partners, including Head Start, are committed to addressing early chronic absenteeism because they see it as a critical strategy to reduce the achievement gap between low-income and racially minoritized learners and their peers.
