The analysis of absenteeism causes among Grade 8 learners revealed that the primary factor was financial constraints, with a weighted mean of 3.42 and 3.14 from teachers and the community, respectively. For parents, the main cause was the distance of the school from their far-flung residences, with a weighted mean of 2.76. Regarding practices employed to mitigate student absenteeism, teachers, parents, and the community somewhat supported students by providing additional allowances (for transportation), supplies, and food packs to facilitate school attendance. However, this approach had the lowest average weighted mean of 2.98 and requires intervention for improvement. The "Project Present" aimed to provide free transportation for students in remote areas of Barangay Pinagwarasan, Basud, Camarines Norte. A collaborative effort between Basud National High School and Barangay Pinagwarasan emphasizes community partnership, addressing educational needs and fostering development. This solution overcomes barriers, promoting inclusive learning by enhancing transportation access, aiming to reduce absenteeism and enhance class attendance. A significant difference was determined when comparing the causes of absenteeism and practices utilized to reduce absenteeism with t-test computed value of 2.47 at 5% level of significance.
