Through Listening and Learning sessions held from February to May 2023, we sought to better understand the challenges and barriers that prevent students from attending school on time every day. This slide deck presents the findings from sessions with school leaders and students.

When asked which challenges, if addressed, would most improve attendance, students prioritized the following areas:

  • Students too tired/start time too early
  • Mental health issues
  • Working inside and outside the home
  • Classroom engagement
  • Transportation

View the complete slide deck below to learn more about the challenges and potential solutions that students and school leaders identified during the sessions.
