Student Attendance Success Plans and My Family’s Help Bank


The Student Attendance Success Plan is designed to help parents track their children’s attendance and work with teachers to set appropriate goals. They are based on materials created by Early Works at Earl Boyles Elementary School in Portland, Oregon. Educators should consider distributing this plan to families. The facilitator’s guide (below) provides tips on how the Student Attendance Success Plan can be used. 


Attendance Works - My Familys Help Bank

My Family's Help Bank

One way to help improve attendance is to encourage families to think about their back up plans for getting to school even when challenges come up. Consider inviting families to use My Family's Help Bank.
