Where Have the Students Gone?
Addressing Attendance, Chronic Absenteeism, and Truancy with Research and an Asset-Based, Proactive Approach
Register now to watch this webinar!Partnerships between schools and families are important for many reasons related to student success and well-being. However, there may be no greater need for effective partnerships than improving attendance. The time has come to shift attendance practices. Reactive, sometimes punitive efforts fall short and can actually break down the relationships with families. Learn how to take a proactive and positive approach with practical strategies you can implement today. We explore common root causes for absence, chronic absenteeism, and truancy and how schools and districts can address those root causes to achieve systemic improvement of attendance issues.
