Addressing chronic absence is typically not a solo sport. Our work has shown that the best efforts to reduce chronic absence involve a partnership with the individual school, the entire district, and the surrounding community. The good news is that when schools and communities work together to provide a comprehensive, tiered system of supports to students and families - that address the reasons for student absences- they can turn chronic absence around.
By working together, all of us - educators, schools, public officials, public agencies, civic organizations, businesses, families, and students- can help all children get to school every day so they have an opportunity to learn, flourish and realize their dreams.
Waco ISD uses a variety of interventions, preventive measures, resources, and strategies so everyone benefits.
