Chronic absenteeism is far too late. We're addressing student absences early.

In districts today, saveRATESM reports are proving that The Achievement Initiative and its base program, Attention2Attendance®, are changing student behavior—regardless of a student's culture, ethnicity, gender or age. In fact, 54% of all the Attention2Attendance students never required a second attendance intervention.

In partnership with K-12 school districts across the country, innovative leaders are using Attention2Attendance data to identify key absenteeism patterns before students reach chronic levels, before they miss too many days and fall too far behind to catch up.

The saveRATE report captures real-time attendance trends, analyzes intervention effectiveness by school-site, grade-level and sub-group and provides district leadership clear focal points to launch targeted campaigns that actively prevent chronic absenteeism.

Attention2Attendance (A2A) has a proven track record

Our saveRATE results prove that well-informed students and parents change their behavior after the first intervention. This chart illustrates our overall saveRATE and our saveRATE results by ethnicity.

Attendance is a dropout predictor

  • The national dropout crisis claims more than 1 MILLION students each year
  • Chronic absences in 6th grade predicts dropouts in high school
  • Only 47% of high school dropouts said their parents were ever contacted about their absences
  • 43% of dropouts interviewed said they missed too many days to catch up


Attendance2Attendance® supports the research that has proven there is a critical link between attendance and academic performance. We have partnered with school districts to prevent chronic absenteeism, to start good attendance habits from kindergarten through high school, to communicate the importance of increased learning time for college and career readiness, and to work directly with school staff and principals to decrease dropout rates.
