Description: Every Student Present is a public awareness campaign about school attendance in the younger grades developed by the Council on Children and Families (CCF). Chronic absence is defined as a child missing more than 10% of enrolled days. This absence from school can lead to delays in reading skills and can impact a child’s overall learning experience.
