WEBINAR RECORDING: Using Evidence-Based Solutions to Reduce Absenteeism

July 13, 2020

The U.S. Department of Education has referred to chronic absenteeism as a hidden educational crisis. That’s because chronic absenteeism, defined as 15 or more days missed in a school year, is actually a predictor for student learning outcomes, student success, and even well-being in adulthood. 

COVID-19 has redefined classrooms, district resources are tight and teachers need to be laser-focused on instruction. Mobilizing families as a support system for engagement and attendance is more critical than ever.

In this recorded webinar, learn how to take a nuanced approach to understanding chronic absenteeism. Panelists will discuss actionable steps school and district leaders can take to manage chronic absenteeism across different learning scenarios as students return to school after the shelter in place orders.

View this recorded webinar now and you’ll learn more about:

  • Leveraging evidence-based strategies to impact attendance at scale
  • Improving attendance as schools and districts address COVID-19 concerns
  • Using data to uncover the root causes of chronic absence
  • Steering away from common assumptions about chronic absenteeism
  • Implementing a tiered approach vs “one strategy fits all”
