Brief Program Description

Participants will focus on the importance of a holistic approach addressing chronic absenteeism through education, motivation, communication, and collaboration. Participants are provided with low-cost/nocost strategies to bring awareness to regular, punctual school attendance. Knowledge/strategies will be provided to identify and address students with school absenteeism trends and how to communicate with teachers, parents, students, and the “new age” family unit. We will provide exciting, interactive experiences on initiatives and creative strategies as attendees leave with take-home practices to implement directly in the learning environment and in their community.
