Story Behind the Curve

Improving attendance is a major strategy in the Danbury Public Schools’ District Improvement Plan. This year, the schools were able to use the District Attendance Tracking Tool (DATT) and technical assistance from Attendance Works to identify and analyze the chronic absenteeism data from all 13 Danbury elementary schools. We found that we had some interesting “outliers”—some of our schools that serve very low income children had better attendance rates than schools that serve more affluent children. The information will help inform attendance messaging and strategies moving forward.
