A School- and Community-Based Strategy for Chronic Absenteeism at W. S. Neal Elementary School in East Brewton, Alabama
Eric T Andrews
The purpose of this project was to develop a school- and community-based strategy to reduce chronic absenteeism among kindergarten and first-grade students at W. S. Neal Elementary School. The project director analyzed internal and external demographic data. The faculty and staff members were surveyed on the school culture. The kindergarten and first-grade students’ parents were surveyed on the school safety, culture, and climate to determine the potential barriers for chronic absenteeism in kindergarten and first-grade students. The project director also explored existing strategic models to determine best practices on chronic absenteeism for kindergarten and first-grade students. The project director developed a school and community-based strategy to address chronic absenteeism in kindergarten and first-grade students and presented the strategy to an existing Attendance Management Team (AMT) and the school-based Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) for approval.
