  • Text Hover
Are you experiencing problems with student attendance? Harvard University published a study that was done to involve parents as partners in reducing student attendance – and it worked – with up to 18% improvement in attendance amongst the students with low grades and 11% in the general school population. Read the article and then work with your PIBG and SLT on a strategy that you can use to communicate very regularly with parents on the importance of attendance. There are so many apps you can use for free! 

Remember: Model the change. Make time. Build relationships. Set high expectations.
