Although most schools returned to in-person learning at the start of the 2021–22 school year, the uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic has continued to create new challenges. First semester attendance data are concerning, showing dramatic increases in chronic absence. This growing absenteeism reflects, as well as contributes to, widening educational inequities.
