From K-12Dive, to the L.A. Times, to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the New Jersey Monitor, or the NY Post every day there is a news story covering how schools across the country are open but seats in classrooms are empty. The media spotlight is creating an imperative for districts to lead with attendance re-engagement strategies as we move out of the pandemic to endemic status.
