K-12 Attendance School Community Sites

To align systems we must focus on specific practices that work; today six schools are putting a core set of interventions to the test and they’re seeing results. And, we bring all of these teams together two-to-three times a year to share cross-site learnings to strengthen the work through collaboration. All Hands Raised’s on the ground work, including much of the work done at the sites below, is enhanced by the advocacy and alignment provided by the K-12 Attendance Strategic Leadership Group.
