As an intervention software program, Attention 2 Attendance is designed to help districts reduce truancy and excessive absences. It allows administrators to track and analyze absence patterns, which also can be compared to district historical trends.
“A2A is the best kind of program: it has tremendous capacity and a friendly user interface. It allows us to increase communication with truant families, while making the district’s workload lighter. Truant parents were more responsive to getting their students to school because we had consistent, strong letters that got their attention.”
