America’s Promise Alliance, Attendance Works, the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, Points of Light and United Way Worldwide invite you to join us as we launch the second year of the Attendance Awareness Campaign, which designates September as Attendance Awareness Month. Last fall, more than 250 communities across the country participated in the first-ever nationwide Attendance Awareness Month and helped call attention to the importance of daily school attendance. This year we are seeking even more communities to join the effort. Hear how communities like Vero Beach, Fla., took positive action on attendance and galvanized a broad coalition of civic leaders, educators, parents and youth. We will also unveil the latest version of the “Count Us In!” toolkit, a resource designed to help you plan your Attendance Awareness Campaign involvement and enlist stakeholders who can collaborate with you. This updated version contains even more resources for making a difference in your community for Attendance Awareness Month 2014.

  • Driving With Data:  Your District’s Call to Action, (PDF)
  • Driving With Data:  Your District’s Call to Action, (Recording)
  • Register for and download the free data tools for calculating chronic absence.
  • Superintendents and school board members are driving forces behind effective district action to improve attendance and reduce chronic absence. In addition to providing a clear and compelling vision of improved outcomes for children, these top leaders have the unique ability to ensure access to data that allow their community to understand the size and scope of the challenge posed by chronic absenteeism. Join us as we speak with Dr. Mary Conway, Superintendent of Vernon Public Schools in Connecticut, who will share how she used chronic absence data to raise public awareness about the importance of attendance, rally a broad base of support and focus her district’s resources on attendance as a top priority. The Attendance Works team will also highlight resources for districts and schools including the latest generation of our free attendance tracking tools.  This webinar is co-sponsored by Attendance Works and United Way Worldwide.
