Regular school attendance is a preventable way of avoiding academic failure. School Support Services at Erie 1 BOCES can assist districts in improving student attendance. This work begins with assisting school districts in making their attendance data actionable. For example, the conversion of average daily attendance to attendance in categories allows schools to identify the students at risk of being chronically absent.
E1B provides training, an attendance improvement tool kit and technical assistance in developing school, community and district-wide responses to attendance improvement, utilizing strategies in a 3-tiered approach. E1B also assists districts in partnering with families and community agencies to intervene when poor attendance is a problem for students or schools. Attendance improvement accomplishments are highlighted in.
