“In addition to prioritizing and reporting on absenteeism, the Administration’s strategy calls for adopting four other strategies:

  1. Increasing effective communication with families, including the use of tactics like texting, which may be part of creating what Attendance Works refers to as a “culture of attendance”;
  2. Visiting families at home to help find supportive solutions;
  3. Making school more relevant for students so they want to be there; and
  4. Meeting the basic needs of students and families, including through investing in Full-Service Community Schools, which, among other features, connect families to supports such as health care, housing, and child care.”
