In many school districts across the country, chronic absence spikes in the transition to middle or high school. Research shows that by 9th grade, attendance is a better predictor of graduation than 8th grade test scores.
How can communities address this alarming attendance gap in the later grades? Join Attendance Works and our guests from Get Schooled, MENTOR and the Center for Supportive Schools for the Finish Strong: Address the Attendance Gap for Teens webinar August 12 at 2 p.m. ET. They will share innovative and evidence-based strategies that help teens persist in going to school every day so they can finish strong.
Get Schooled will release results of an online survey of middle and high school students showing why they miss school and what could help bring them back to class.
