About the summary

School Leader’s Guide to Tackling Attendance Challenges advocates a shift in both mindset and strategies to address absenteeism. First, increasing student attendance is a goal that is absolutely within reach for school systems. This shift in mindset is essential so that educators do not abdicate responsibility or believe that attendance is a problem they have no control over. Schools where chronic absenteeism is a significant problem have expressed surprise that relatively simple strategies make such a huge difference in improving attendance across the whole student body.
