Absenteeism in DC Public Schools early education program: An update for school year 2013-14
Enrollment in early childhood education programs can be an important stepping stone to higher educational achievement, particularly for low-income children. However, children cannot succeed in these programs unless they are present. This report examines the extent of absenteeism in the District of Columbia Public Schools' (DCPS) early education program in Title I schools in the 2013-14 school year (SY). This program is a Head Start School-Wide Model (HSSWM), which combines local funding for pre-kindergarten with Head Start dollars. (author abstract)
