Bringing Attendance Home

Thursday February 2, 2023
9:30 - 11:00 AM
Room 240-242

At every level, family engagement is a key component of effective, comprehensive approaches to reducing chronic absenteeism. To sustain progress, districts/schools must deliberately build systems that support equitable family engagement. Using a MTSS model, this workshop will support educators in the work of helping families nurture a habit of regular attendance so they can help their children realize their hopes and dreams. Session participants will have access to a ready built PowerPoint for presentations to do with families on the topic of increasing attendance and reducing chronic absenteeism. Participants will also receive current data from the Kansas State Department of Education on increased attendance and its correlation with strong family engagement in districts/schools.
