3 Tiers of Intervention
Attendance Works recommends a three-tiered approach that starts with foundational supports for the whole school. These foundational supports are followed by prevention-oriented supports (Tier1), more personalized outreach (Tier 2) and intensive intervention (Tier 3).
Foundational Supports. The pyramid graphic (below) shows how the 3 Tiers of Intervention sit on top of foundational supports. We believe that these foundational supports are the building blocks of good schools that promote attendance.
Some supports, such as access to computer equipment, internet connectivity, access to learning support for students, and support for families to help them facilitate learning at home are even more fundamental when instruction is remote. When resources are not in place, it is the responsibility of the school and community to put them in place.
