Improving Attendance & Truancy

Focusing on the importance of intervening early when students show a pattern of missing school or arriving late, this workshop explores the dynamics of excessive absenteeism and truancy, including why students don't come to school. Resources available through the courts and social service agencies are detailed. This presentation is only avaiable to school staff and administrators.

In-person workshops are currently unavailable.
