Attendance Awareness Month — September 2013
Every school day counts, and everyone can make a difference: educators, afterschool programs, mayors, businesses and parents. That’s why we are joining Attendance Works and other partners to launch Attendance Awareness Month this September in communities across the United States. Join in and rally our community around the importance of attendance and raising achievement by monitoring and reducing chronic absence. _______________________________________________________________
We specialize in improving elementary, middle, and high school attendance in area schools at the Community, School District and School Building Level. Partnering with schools and their districts, the Attendance Collaborative provides knowledge of best practice, technical assistance, organization of project initiative, training, policy advice, and research regarding attendance.
-Enhance the positive school climate and culture around attendance and academic achievement.
-Support internal capacity in the school building to provided efficient and effective school-based strategies and interventions that address individual barriers to attendance.
-Advance collaborative efforts between school and community to address barriers inhibiting school attendance.
