Reducing Chronic Absenteeism: Through the Power of Relationships & Data

Watch the full discussion below.

Chronic absenteeism rates have skyrocketed in the past few years, leading to a decline in student success and staff morale. Research has proven that supportive relationships and connections with trusted adults can get students back into the classroom and more engaged in learning. 

During this webinar, the Director of Research from the BARR Center shares the latest findings on chronic absenteeism and proven ways to re-engage students through the power of intentional relationships and the use of real-time data. A panel of school leaders will share their strategies through BARR (Building Assets, Reducing Risks), an evidence-based system that significantly reduces absenteeism rates and improves staff morale. Attendees will leave with practical tips and next steps on how these strategies can be put to practice in their schools.



Johnson Central High School in Eastern Kentucky is a BARR School of Excellence and has been recognized as a National Spotlight School for building a successful student success system and reducing absenteeism from 20% to 2%. View the news report here.
