Reversing revenue declines tied to attendance and enrollment is a top concern for district leaders across the country. As U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona noted, to recover lost ground from the pandemic, “it must be a top priority to reengage every student and family.” In addition to playing a crucial role in school resourcing, attendance can also provide a useful signal of the health of a school community. It can highlight areas where wraparound support for students is needed.

This edWebinar offers district leaders practical, actionable ways to improve enrollment and attendance through positive school culture. Viewers explore best practices for proactive and positive attendance management for both families and school staff, review promising results from a recent quasi-experimental study meeting the ESSA Tier 2 standard of evidence, and hear how leaders in other schools and districts are innovating new approaches to attracting and retaining students.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 school and district leaders.
