As the issue of chronic absence has risen in prominence, school districts and communities across the nation are seeking more powerful and effective tools to identify and help students who miss too many days of school.
Join the Attendance Works Peer Learning Network on Feb. 4 at 1 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT as we examine two exciting new approaches to putting actionable data into the hands of practitioners. This webinar will feature:
- Fresno Unified School District’s student tracking system that alerts educators to potential problems using a set of early warning indicators. Using new visual displays of data such as the Chronic Absence Heat Map Mosaic, Fresno Unified is creating the next generation of tools to help practitioners in this 74,000-student California school district see patterns of chronic absence at a glance and intervene effectively in raising academic achievement and reducing the dropout rate.
- OnTrackEDU, which uses chronic absence as one of several early warning indicators to help people proactively identify and support off-track students. Currently being piloted by several districts, OnTrackEDU’s easy-to-read data dashboard shows what is happening at a district, school, and individual student level. OnTrackEDU is also an interactive platform designed to help the many practitioners working with a student communicate and collaborate as they implement and track interventions.
