Why are chronic absence and attendance such critical accountability measures?
Chronic absence—at any age—is one of the best early warning indicators that a student is at risk academically. In California, the Local Control Funding Formula will—for the first time—require every school district to establish annual goals and specific actions to reduce chronic absence as part of the development of local plans. This process offers lessons that can apply to any school or district in the nation seeking to use improved attendance as a lever to achieve more equitable outcomes.
This archived webinar will help you:
- Determine whether chronic absence is a hidden problem in your school or district
- Identify which schools and sub-groups of students require interventions to improve attendance
- Provide guidance on what you can do to improve attendance and to help analyze attendance data
- Help you develop goals and activities to meet the requirements of the Local Control and Accountability Plan
