Accurately Tracking Absence Data Could Help Mitigate Problem of “Chronically Absent” Teachers


Biometric Time and Attendance clocking systems

Implementing a biometric time and attendance system capable of tracking attendance data in a very accurate and secure manner could potentially help mitigate the phenomenon of “chronically absent” teachers in New Haven, Connecticut.

Although average teacher attendance rates are high, about 100 teachers in the system have missed enough days—about 9—to be considered “chronically absent,” leading to increased focus on accurately tracking that data and supporting those who need extra help.

The effort is part of the district’s “Attendance Matters” campaign to reduce students’ chronic absence, especially for those in the younger grades, by targeting non-academic factors that might regularly prevent them from going to school.

Teachers’ absences from the classroom can negatively affect student learning, said Michael Crocco, director of the talent office.
