    Engaging Parents to Reduce Truancy Rates

    Truancy is defined as a student being absent or tardy by more than 30 minutes without a valid excuse on 3 occasions in a school year, and we intend to reduce the truancy rate by 10% at our two charter schools that operate in Skid Row. We propose a three-pronged collaborative approach to addressing chronic absence and truancy: 1) changes in school attendance practices; 2) home visitation; and 3) parent engagement and leadership opportunities for our enrolled families.
