Standard 1: Planning for Continuous Improvement

Course Overview

Encouraging regular school attendance is one of the most powerful ways you can prepare your students for success. When you make school attendance a priority, students earn better grades, develop healthy life habits, avoid negative behaviors, and have a better chance of graduating from high school. This professional study will allow participants to understand the importance of school attendance, and explore strategies to discourage truancy. Participants will read and explore research, and conduct interviews with school principals to learn about their school's attendance policies and initiatives. The rigor of the course increases as participants use their acquired knowledge from the course research and peer collaborations to create and compose an action plan collaboratively with their school’s leadership team to discourage truancy to improve their school’s attendance.
