In part 2 of our chronic absenteeism we talk about the role COVID has played in the rising number of students that have been labeled as chronically absent in WCS. We also discuss the success WCS students and teachers despite the rising absenteeism numbers. We are hoping to lower the number of chronically absent students this year and see even more growth! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbOxYYqgheg
