Students who are absent from school miss important learning opportunities that can be difficult, or impossible to make up. Engaging students is the key to getting them focused and ready to learn.

Attendance Works is offering a three-session virtual training for elementary and secondary school leaders and staff to provide proven, evidence-based tiered strategies to engage students and promote attendance using a team approach. The series cost is $300 per person. Group sessions will meet every two weeks on assigned dates.

Participants will learn:

  • Strategies that create a positive school climate that encourages attendance and participation;
  • How to provide extra support to students who need it; and
  • How to mobilize school staff and community partners.

Participants will interact with their peers and the Attendance Works team in breakout rooms. Districts can find more information and registration links on the Attendance Works website.
