Challenges Tracking and Reporting Truancy
This chapter discusses problems identifying and reporting truancy and gives recommendations for ways to solve these problems. Additionally, the role of support staff in facilitating quality attendance data collection and analysis is discussed. It is argued that high-quality systems to monitor student attendance are essential to help reduce truancy. It is important for school social workers to take on the task of helping their schools develop and to implement effective attendance-monitoring systems so that they can intervene early before students fall behind academically and develop chronic attendance problems.
