Over 6 million students were chronically absent in the 2013-2014 school year. Which means that those students missed 15 days or more in a single school year!
During the month of September, Attendance Awareness Month, many are shedding light on the growing epidemic of student absences. Chalkable has given resources to highlight attendance issues in your classroom, quotes to share on social media to spread awareness, and today we are sharing a solution to introduce at your school.
TheLearning Earnings Achievement Program combats chronic absenteeism and improves student achievement through an incentive-based program. To fully understand how the program works and how it can positively impact your school, we interviewed one of the innovators behind the Learning Earnings program, Adam Pearson (AP).
