Leadership Webinar


SI&A and Attendance Works are convening an executive leadership webinar on the use of attendance data to address the impact of non-attendance/non-participation for the remainder of this year and as we begin planning for the upcoming school year.


The very definition of attendance and participation may still be up for debate—but the fact that schools are seeing absenteeism skyrocket, record course failures and high-levels of non-participation is undisputed. Attendance (or learning time) is a direct indicator of future dropouts, so with a projected 233% rate of increase in chronic absenteeism according to a SI&A analysis—the forecast is grim.


What can district leaders do to have an immediate impact?


Superintendent Dr. Brian Shumate of Troup County School System and Assistant Superintendent Dr. Joshua Randall of Sulphur Springs Union School District, will join Attendance Works' Executive Director, Hedy Chang in a panel discussion about long-term strategies to support student attendance, taking a deep dive into data to direct processes and effective interventions and how to leverage positive communication with students, parents and the community. There are answers.

Don't miss the third and final webinar in this series Tuesday, March 2, 2021 at 10 am PT/1pm ET. We have a national attendance crisis that can be turned around now!
