Governor Youngkin has announced the Chronic Absenteeism Task Force.

This Task Force is a  key in the ALL IN VA plan to accelerate the learning loss recovery by addressing Attendance, Literacy and Learning.

The Task Force is a response to a near doubling of chronic absenteeism in Virginia classrooms.

They will help develop resources and distribute action plans for school divisions to address absenteeism rates across the Commonwealth.

Nearly one in five students are missing over 10% of their school year.
