Education is important and attendance is no small ingredient to a successful experience in school. Our staff works as a team with students, families, and school districts to insure that attendance is kept a high priority. Interventions range from early contact with students showing irregular attendance patterns to legal involvement with parent/guardian(s) regarding truancy issues.
As with all states in the Union, Oregon has laws relating to attendance, Chapter 339 in Oregon Revised Statutes , and it is the responsibility of the School Attendance Advisor to communicate and enforce the mandatory attendance laws.
Consultation and training are available to school staff on effective strategies and best practices for encouraging regular attendance. We have given verbal presentations both at state and district wide conferences as well as presented at individual school staff meetings. Our advisors can work individually with Principals, Attendance Secretaries, Counselors and Teachers.
