Educators know the value of attendance. But how can you communicate that—and help families and students overcome barriers to attendance? The Attendance! Engaging Families, Students and Staff in Your Attendance Campaign resource kit will help you engage everyone in your school community to improve attendance.
Research shows that there is a statistically significant correlation between poor attendance and low grades.
Take a giant leap toward improving student achievement in your school with over 100 pages of resources (available in English and Spanish) including attendance strategies and campaigns with varying themes that you can use year after year. Your resource kit also addresses the sensitive and complex issues that can lead to chronic absenteeism and provides specific strategies for helping families overcome these barriers to attendance.
There is nothing more important to student success than having families involved in making sure students are in class, on time and ready to learn every day!
Appropriate for both elementary and secondary levels, this kit contains all these helpful components:
- Three 10-minute, enhanced PowerPoint presentations on why attendance matters, professionally narrated for elementary and secondary families and staff. Each video comes with a leader's guide, script and handouts.
