The hyperlinks provided on this site are valuable resources on organizations that work to reduce truancy, decrease the dropout rate, increase student achievement and promote a safe school climate for all students. This section contains information about relevant research, best practices and strategies; a listing of available student attendance tracking systems; a list of common terms related to truancy; a list of frequently asked questions and a list of the members of the Task Force on Student Attendance and Truancy Reduction and others that made this toolkit possible.
