This guide should be a part of every school district in the country. As a former middle school principal of 13 years, students not coming to school was one of my biggest challenges. I commend Sharon Bradley for taking on this enormous task so that all stakeholders have the tools to begin to address this crucial student attendance problem in all of our schools.

Watch a short clip of Sharon Bradley talking about the training.

Since school buildings across the country shut their doors and transitioned to remote learning in 2020, millions of students have not been seen in school. Of those missing students, a disproportionate number are students of color, students living in poverty, students with disabilities, English language learners, children in foster care, and children of migrant workers. Finding and re-engaging these students is especially challenging given the increased household instability of economically disadvantaged families. The implications for students, families, and communities are dire. This urgent crisis demands immediate, effective action.

During this 3-part webinar series, Sharon Bradley will provide tiered, effective practices to collectively address the root causes of chronic absenteeism. Through reflective and engaging sessions, participants will acquire a variety of attendance-promoting strategies that can be implemented individually or integrated into intervention-based frameworks such as Multi-Tiered Systems of Supports (MTSS).
