What is the Empty Chair?

Attendance matters for success, both in school and in life. When a student is absent from school, he/she misses out on opportunities to learn and succeed.

The Empty Chair is a symbol that stresses the importance of attendance and the fact that a teacher cannot teach an empty chair.

This initiative by the Mayor's Attendance Task Force is part of a strategy to develop a culture of attendance. Understanding that everyone in the community has a stake and a role in ensuring that every student attends school every day, the group is seeking to engage different sectors of the community and work together to improve attendance.
