Chronic Absence in the Sacramento City Unified School District

May 01, 2017

Chronic school absence is associated with a number of poor outcomes for students, schools and communities. Since 2012, CRC-affiliated faculty member Nancy Erbstein and CRC staff (currently Stacy Shwartz-Olagundoye) have worked with the Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD) and other community groups to understand and address the causes of chronic school absenteeism. Together, they have generated a series of briefs aimed at quantifying and analyzing the problem, and pilot ways to reduce chronic absenteeism in the SCUSD district and beyond.
