Parents are essential partners in reducing chronic absence and ensuring their children get to school every day. Yet, as research commissioned by The Ad Council shows, many parents fail to see the connection between attendance in the early grades and dropping out.
Join us on March 13 at 1 p.m. ET for our next webinar, Bringing It Home: Engaging Parents as Critical Partners in Reducing Chronic Absence. We will hear about parents’ key attitudes and behavior surrounding school absences and discuss recommendations on how to effectively communicate messages about attendance. Sheri Klein, Vice President of Research and Evaluation at The Ad Council, will present findings from their qualitative research, followed by a panel discussion highlighting different models for engaging parents in reducing chronic absence.
