The Southern Nevada Family Engagement Center (SNFEC) is here to help students learn and grow! Many students got out of their routines during the pandemic and are not attending school regularly. Families can use this website to find tips and tools to help them get back into the routine of going to school.

What is Chronic Absenteeism?

A student is considered “chronically absent” when they miss 10% or more of their scheduled school days.

The number of students missing more than 10% of school days nearly doubled after the pandemic.

When families are involved in school, students are more likely to go to school, learn, and graduate!
