Attendance

Issue

Chronic absenteeism is a complex issue that has far-reaching impact on students, their families, and communities as a whole.  Whether absences are excused or unexcused, students who do not attend school regularly and on time jeopardize their ability to develop healthy life habits and important social skills, and have an increased chance of not performing well academically and dropping out of school.  Students who are not in school are also more likely to be involved in a crime, either as victims or perpetrators.  When they become adults, they struggle with maintaining good jobs and good health.

Attendance Resource Team

The Attendance Resource Team is working to support schools identified with Chronic absentee ( not part of ALL In Campaign) to reengage students in schools and increase social, emotional, and behavioral-health related supports at ten identified schools. The A.R.T. social workers support schools by:

  • Promoting home-to-school connectedness
  • Supporting the social-emotional, academic growth, and personal success of All students
  • Utilizing data analysis and fostering partnerships with community agencies to identify and provide targeted interventions to improve school culture and student outcomes

Additionally, the A.R.T. Social Workers provide case management Support for students referred to the Attendance Review Board (SARB)
