TRUANCY PREVENTION

           Students with five to nine unexcused absences receive wraparound services that assist them and their families in addressing the family, school, and student factors that prevent them for attending school regularly. Activities include awareness/outreach; identification/referral/intake; and enrollment; and intervention. Additionally, families are offered multi-tiered, individualized services that are designed to accommodate their availability and level of commitment to address issues that impede school attendance.  This includes home visitation, case management, and other services, to include: parenting workshops/training/family strengthening events; music education and physical fitness for the middle schoolers. CSC works with elementary and middle schools throughout the district.

Program COMPONENTS

  • Family events, designed to promote parent-child bonding and emphasize the importance of education and school attendance

  • Graduation ceremony for completing the Parent Support Workshop

  • Home Visitation, Case Management, and Referrals as needed

REFERRAL

PROCESS

Each participating school’s Attendance Committee will collaborate closely with CSC staff to identify and refer students/families to the program. Once families are enrolled, CSC staff will conduct an intake with the families and work on goals families have identified.
