Enhancing Systems to Improve Student Attendance

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Attending school on a regular basis is fundamental to the positive development of academic, language, social, and work-related skills. In Alberta, up to 100,000 students are impacted by school absenteeism and are at significant risk of negative future outcomes, such as economic disadvantage, incarceration, and mental health challenges. 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. This innovating approach was expected to increase attendance rates, improve academic achievement, and boost school engagement across its four pilot schools.
