Webinar: AttendaNCe Counts – What are NC School Districts Doing?
September is Attendance Awareness Month. The NC Early Childhood Foundation is hosting a webinar on September 12 from 10-11am to hear the results of chronic absence self-assessment surveys completed by school districts across North Carolina. With help from the North Carolina School Superintendents Association, NCECF asked superintendents to assess their own districts’ attendance policies and practices. Approximately half of the districts in North Carolina replied to the survey.
They’ll explore the aggregated results of the survey and share bright spots from around the state that offer actionable steps districts can learn from to improve regular school attendance.
