Can You Hear Us Now? Amplifying Key Messages on Attendance

Posted by Attendance Works on June 30, 2014

Webinar focuses on anti-truancy efforts

When parents and youth understand the link between good attendance and their hopes and dreams for the future, they are motivated to do whatever they can to get to school every day. Hearing that message from friends, mentors, teachers, counselors, pastors, coaches, doctors, business owners, mayors — in short, the entire community speaking with one voice — can have a tremendous impact on student attendance.

Through a webinar on August 6th, Hedy Chang, director of Attendance Works and a cross-section of speakers will discuss how to engage youth and parents in building a local culture of attendance, as well as share strategies for how to rally leaders from every walk of life to speak in unison during Attendance Awareness Month in September.
