The purpose of this study was to determine whether there was an impact with student absenteeism and students’ academic success while in kindergarten. There were 89 students selected in kindergarten comprising this convenience sample for this study. The measurement tool was the Student Numeracy Assessment Progression and Kindergarten Literacy Assessment from the Harford County Public School curriculum development team. This study involved the use of post-assessment data to show the impact of student absenteeism and their academic growth throughout the length of the study. The study showed that there was not an impact of student absenteeism on student academic success throughout this school year. Studies should continue this topic because of the importance of student attendance and its relationship to students’ academic success to determine when the impact and achievement gaps begin.
