Portraits of Change
Tuesday, September 12, 2017 6:00:00 PM UTC - 8:30:00 PM UTC
Join us for the final Attendance Awareness Month 2017 webinar! This fourth webinar will feature Portraits of Change: Aligning School and Community Resources to Reduce Chronic Absence, a new brief from Attendance Works and the Everyone Graduates Center. Co-authors Hedy Chang and Robert Balfanz will highlight key findings from their national and state analysis of how many schools face high levels of chronic absence and discuss the implications for state and local action. Presenters will share inspiring examples of how their communities reduced chronic absence, even when it reached high levels in a school, district or particular student population. These insights are even more important as a growing number of states adopt chronic absence into their accountability systems for school improvement.
Presenters: Alicia Lara, United Way Worldwide; Robert Balfanz, Everyone Graduates Center, Johns Hopkins University; District Leaders including Lorri Hobson, Cleveland Public Schools; Ramona Halcomb and Robin Shobe, Oregon Department of Education; Carrie Zimbrick, Willamina School District; and Hedy Chang, Attendance Works.
