5th Annual Reducing Chronic Absenteeism Regional Conference
September 29, 2017 @ 7:30 am - 3:30 pm
The Fifth Annual Chronic Absenteeism conference is a Riverside County initiative bringing together schools, community, and statewide leaders to strengthen the connection between school attendance and academic achievement through research-based practices and strategies. When school districts focus resources and use research-based strategies, attendance rates increase and chronic absenteeism decreases due to targeting and addressing the need rather than strictly using punitive measures.
