|Date:||Tuesday July 17, 2018|
|Time:||3:15 PM - 4:15 PM|
Good attendance is critical to realizing the benefit of a high-quality program. Unfortunately, the focus on average attendance has caused programs to overlook high levels of chronic absence (missing 10% or more of preschool). This session will highlight how to use data to monitor chronic absence and partner with families to address attendance barriers and cultivate a habit of good attendance. Implications for quality improvement efforts will be discussed.
