MCYC: An Elementary School Attendance Story

Essential Question:
What are the key factors contributing to attendance in elementary school?

A data story for and with the Providence Mayor's Children and Youth Cabinet. The primary goal of the story is to understand factors affecting attendance in elementary school. Our focus school is Bailey Elementary.


The Providence Mayor's Children and Youth Cabinet was formed to improve outcomes for children and youth in Providence. An early focus of the Cabinet is on data and data-sharing. One piece of the data work is to determine areas where data-sharing and collaboration can improve the delivery of services to children and families in Providence.

There are two goals for data sharing and collaboration:

  1. Availability and use of aggregate data to inform policy
  2. Provision of relevant, timely data for practitioners on the front line delivering programming.
