Get 2 School

Attendance = Success


Student success starts with school attendance. Students who are absent from school miss important learning opportunities, which can be difficult, or even impossible, to make up. The mission of the Get 2 School Network is to prioritize attendance by connecting its users to resources aimed at tackling chronic absenteeism. The Cleveland Browns Foundation, Ohio Department of Education and Proving Ground are deeply committed to this mission.

A NETWORK APPROACH TO IMPROVING ATTENDANCE


There is power in a network of unique partners and collaborators who join together to solve challenges and better serve Ohio’s most disadvantaged students. That power of partnership is what fuels the Get 2 School Network. Prior to the statewide network’s launch, individual partners and collaborators were working separately to improve student attendance and reduce chronic absenteeism. The Get 2 School Network unites partners and collaborators to leverage individual strengths-such as deploying attendance-focused campaigns, sharpening school improvement plans, launching specific attendance strategies and evaluating the impact of those strategies-to better support Ohio’s schools and districts through collective impact. The Get 2 School Network is committed to providing Ohio’s educators, students, parents, families and caregivers with access to quality tools and strategic counsel aimed at elevating attendance and putting an end to chronic absenteeism.
