Attending school on a regular basis is fundamental to the positive development of children. In Alberta, over 150,000 students are impacted by school absenteeism and are at significant risk of negative future outcomes, such as economic disadvantage and incarceration. Recognizing the prevalence of absenteeism, Rocky View Schools launched the Attendance Innovation Campaign which aimed to educate communities as to the importance of attendance, empower schools to utilize data to monitor and improve practice, and eliminate barriers to student attendance through a system of tiered interventions. The techniques, resources, and preliminary results will be shared during this presentation.
