Better Together: Integrating Attendance and Behavior

Schools and districts are challenged as never before with student attendance and behavior. Nearly 30% of students were chronically absent in 2021-22. Rather than operating in silos, some districts and schools are integrating their approach to attendance and behavior. Simply put, their staff work better together in meeting the needs of the whole child.

Join the National PBIS Center, Attendance Works and a panel of educators as they share their strategies for combining efforts to create systems that support good attendance and behavior.
