Educator Resources

As educators, you hold a unique, profound understanding of your students. From their personal stories and background to learning styles and preferences, you modify and tailor your efforts to reach each scholar individually. Check out our Educator Resources page designed to assist in improving attendance by offering four action steps with exciting tools and resources, ultimately impacting student success.

Attendance Tracker

Our students are our most valuable resource, and we want to help ensure we’re making positive strides towards success. One of the most important things students can do is track their attendance and know how many days of school they have missed. To assist students and families keep a strong pulse on their absences, we have developed an attendance tracker that can be used throughout the entire school year.
