The Attendance Matters Bus
School bus

Like most schools, we have identified regular attendance as a struggle.  In an effort to go beyond the usual interventions and think creatively about how we may solve the issue of chronic absenteeism, we developed the Attendance Matters Bus.  Once a week our attendance team identifies students who are chronically absent and, we feel, would respond to the AB intervention.  Every day, students who are identified and absent from school receive a phone call and, around 8:45, we send another bus out, staffed with counseling and administration to get the students.  KPS will present the success of this intervention, including data and discussion of wraparound services.
