This webinar highlights the relationship between chronic health conditions and absenteeism and the collection and use of attendance data in the management of chronic conditions in schools.

Speakers, including Attendance Works Director Hedy Chang, will discuss absenteeism including health-related absences as a barrier to learning, share information and examples on data collection and use in identifying and tracking students with chronic conditions and demonstrating reduced absences through efforts that improve student health, and offer guidance to begin work in this area.

In addition, the webinar will feature innovative projects by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The state’s school health project will present on the development of a Healthy Schools Dashboard to report integrated data.

The Electronic Surveillance System for the Early Notification of Community-based Epidemics (ESSENCE) will discuss its incorporation of absenteeism data from all of the state’s public school systems and how these processes can apply to state health department-led efforts targeting chronic conditions in schools.
