EveryDay Labs partners with school districts to reduce absenteeism by delivering Absence Reports to parents and guardians. Our intervention uses behavioral insights to empower parents and guardians with actionable information about their child's absences. First developed and tested by Harvard's Student Social Support R&D Lab, our program is easy to implement, scalable, cost effective, and has been proven to reduce the number of days students miss school. The intervention is delivered by EveryDay Labs directly to parents and guardians so that it does not burden teachers or principals with additional demands on their time.
Three randomized experiments with 58,000 students in 12 districts of varying sizes demonstrate Absense Reports consistently reduce chronic absenteeism by 10-15%.
