The Mission Promise Neighborhood (MPN) in San Francisco offers coordinated supports and services to help children and families connected to the Mission neighborhood achieve health, education, and economic goals. The Mission Economic Development Agency, the community lead for the MPN zone, and San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) partnered with the John W. Gardner Center for Youth and Their Communities at Stanford University (Gardner Center) to investigate outcomes for students in four MPN schools: Bryant Elementary School, Caesar Chavez Elementary School, Everett Middle School, and John O’Connell High School. This brief explores our 2018 analysis of attendance among students at MPN schools responding to the following research question:
To what extent have rates of school attendance among students who attended MPN schools differed over time from those of similar students at other SFUSD schools?
