The following is information from the Nebraska State Education Association:

  • Research shows frequently absent eighth-graders had less than a 50% high school graduation rate.
  • Habitual truancy is the first indicator of the eventual dropping out of school.

The definition of “truant” in the dictionary is: a person who is absent without leave, especially from school.

The Nebraska State Education Association, Building Bright Futures, and the Nebraska Broadcasters Association joined forces to create TruancySolutions.org.  The goal is to educate parents and students on the importance of regular school attendance and the long-term impact that truancy has on a student’s life.  The following information is taken from the website mentioned above:
  • 93% of freshman who miss less than a week of school over the course of a year, graduate on time, in four years.
  • During the 2009-2010 school year, nearly 22,000 Nebraska students missed more than 20 days of school.
  • During the 2010-2011 school year, 4th graders who missed more than 20 days of school scored 21 points lower on statewide reading assessments than those who missed fewer than 20 days.
  • During the 2010-2011 school year, 11th graders who missed more than 20 days of school scored 30 points lower on statewide reading assessments than those who missed fewer than 20 days.
