Chalkbeat: Chicago Schools Attendance Continued to Decline Last Year

“Attendance is always a priority for schools, but even more so now.”

CIS of Chicago’s Senior Director of Intensive Student Supports, Shipra Panicker, and our Senior Director of Partnerships, Robin Koelsch, chatted with Chalkbeat recently about the work our organization is doing to boost student attendance.
