Every Student, Every Day-No Matter What: Realizing the Power of Chronic Absence Data to Ensure Safe, Supportive Schools

Wednesday, December 7, 2016, 10-11:30 am PT / 1-2:30 pm ET

Every public school student-no matter his or her race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, disability, citizenship status, or other perceived difference-is entitled to attend a safe, supportive school that promotes daily attendance and ensures an equal opportunity to learn, grow, and succeed.

To support state, district, school, and community leaders in delivering on this guarantee-no matter what-this virtual summit will feature leading practitioners, researchers, federal officials, and advocates from across the country who are leveraging chronic absence data to propel systems change that ensures high-quality, whole-child supports for all students. This online summit will focus on state and district implementation of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and the opportunity to realize the power of chronic absence data to develop systems of support that improve student attendance and other important youth outcomes.

This summit is sponsored by the US Department of Education in partnership with Attendance Works, Healthy Schools Campaign, Trust for America’s Health, and Everyone Graduates Center at Johns Hopkins University.
