A new report is raising concerns about absenteeism in the Pittsburgh Public Schools.

According to the report, 47 percent of students in the district’s high schools missed at least 10 percent – or 18 days – in the school year.

Superintendent Linda Lane is now calling for a ‘be there’ campaign.

The information comes from the “State of the District” report.

It also looks at other categories, including adequate yearly progress, proficiency levels, student growth and more.
