New Parent Video on Attendance
Ask parents about the importance of school attendance in the early grades, and they can tell you why showing up every day matters. They can also share their very real challenges in getting children to school.
Bringing Attendance Home, a new video from Attendance Works features parents talking to other parents about reducing absenteeism.
Filmed in schools across the country and released just in time for Attendance Awareness Month, the video offers tips for parents and schools to improve student attendance. It complements the toolkit we released last year that provides the rationale and exercises for engaging parents on school attendance.
The video is perfect for a back-to-school night or parent summit. Download the video, and a guide and PowerPoint for leading discussions here.
