WEBINAR: Strong Student Attendance and Engagement: What Schools Can Do

Addressing chronic absenteeism is top of mind for school and district administrators as they chart a path forward for academic recovery. The number of students who missed 10 percent or more of school days as much as doubled during the pandemic, research suggests.  Now educators face a big challenge: Helping students rebuild attendance habits while addressing the barriers that have kept them out of school. In this Education Week webinar, panelists will discuss the school factors that correlate with strong attendance, how to measure and track absenteeism, and how to build cultures that support strong engagement.
