Helping districts meet the challenges of distance learning
Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) for attendance
The Achievement Initiative provides promising practices to identify and implement effective interventions to reengage “disconnected” students and their families.
Redefine "attendance" to participation or check-ins
Compile district attendance daily to determine who is not showing up
Intervene & Outreach
Communication needs to be positive
It needs to be mail-based—Why?
The digital divide and equity crisis are real
46% of the email addresses in your SIS are invalid or missing
25% email open rate
You need the data now to help with decision making later
You need to determine the best approach when schools reopen and/or if schools close again
Effectively communicating across the digital divide
At-risk and marginalized students are most impacted at this time, heavily affected by the digital divide.
As many as 25% of students are not checking in for distance learning. Tracking student attendance is an imperative to identifying and intervening with those students not being reached. In a Harvard study, mail-based communications reduced chronic absenteeism by 15%.
