Improving Attendance in a Remote Learning Environment
Freeman, J.; Flannery, B.; Sugai, G.; Goodman, S.; Simonsen, B.; Barrett, S.
Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports
In the current context, barriers to student attendance and engagement have only increased. Schools and districts are encouraged to emphasize a supportive multi-tiered model for supporting student and staff engagement and attendance rather than punitive attendance or truancy policies. Leadership teams will need to be aware of and adjust policy and practice in response to local trends related to infection rates, food insecurity, and homelessness. The purpose of this brief is to adapt the suggestions and strategies provided in "Improving Attendance and Reducing Chronic Absenteeism" to guide practice during remote instruction. Strategies from both briefs will be helpful during hybrid instructional models. [For "Improving Attendance and Reducing Chronic Absenteeism," see ED609387.]
