Last year, 22% of the students in Cohoes missed more than 18 days of school. That's 470 students in grades K-12! Too many students are missing too much school. We believe that if we all work together--schools, families, community groups, business owners and city government, we can reduce chronic absenteeism. Because when it comes to school, #EveryMinuteMatters
Chronic absenteeism: Missing 2 days of school a month, which adds up to 18 days (10%) a year.
Good attendance: Missing 9 days (5%) or less a year.
