Engaged: Using Summer to Connect Students and Families

This webinar, facilitated by Attendance Works, explores how schools, public agencies, and community partners can use attendance and participation data to organize and tailor summer programs. It suggests a 4-step framework: (1) establish a team; (2) identify priority groups of students to reach; (3) craft engagement strategies; and (4) reflect, learn, and improve. It included excellent examples of summer programs from an Expeditionary Learning Charter School in D.C. and a rural district in Tennessee.
