Join Your Colleagues in San Francisco to close Attendance Awareness Month!

This guest blog post comes from Lee Funk, Executive Director of the Attendance Institute

The Attendance Institute, a non-profit agency dedicated to promoting student engagement, is hosting its second annual summit, “Cultivating Success,” in San Francisco on September 29, 2017. This event will focus on multiple routes to successful student performance and will take place on Friday, September 29, 2017, at the Marriott Marquis.

The goal is to bring together innovators, scholars, and result-minded leaders who have real solutions for increasing student achievement and, ultimately, success in life. The forum will stress what proven results are possible—not years in the future, but now.

Ryan J. Smith, the Executive Director of The Education Trust–West, a research and advocacy organization, will deliver the keynote address and Dr. Tamarah Pfeiffer, the Associate Deputy Director for the Bureau of Indian Education, will speak during the luncheon.

The Institute’s research staff will unveil the results of a study involving over 70 districts and more than 700,000 students on the effectiveness of systemic interventions for reducing chronic absenteeism and improving graduation rates.
