Lessons from the Pandemic: Re-engaging Students Who Have Left School during COVID-19
Over the past year the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly disrupted learning and family life. Increased mobility and family economic hardship—along with drastic changes to learning environments—has caused more youth than usual to leave school before graduating. Join America’s Promise, National League of Cities, and Attendance Works on March 25 from 1:00-2:30 PM MST in a conversation with young people and community leaders from around the country exploring promising strategies for re-engaging students who have left school without graduating due to the challenges presented by the pandemic. Register here!
In this conversation, panelists will explore:
the scale of the issue, including tracking, measuring and understanding absenteeism and engagement data during this complex time;
new practices for what re-engagement has looked like in specific communities; and
ideas for prioritizing re-engagement in this and next school year.
