Attendance - What's Working

One of the most difficult issues for Oklahoma alternative education programs is student attendance. Indianapolis is trying a group of interventions aimed at finding students with chronic absenteeism and intervening to change that -- with rewards and communication, not by arresting the parents. The other half of the initiative is stressing the importance of attendance in every school; for example, teachers go over student attendance at all parent-teacher conferences.
