Family Engagement and Attendance: Two Sides of the Same Coin Webinar

The empty chair in the classroom serves as a silent alarm, signaling a deeper struggle—chronic absenteeism. However, extensive research illustrates a clear connection between active family involvement and improved attendance rates. Beyond mere homework checks, it’s about constructing a bridge between home and school, nurturing a shared commitment to learning, and establishing a support network that catches students before they fall. At the core of this work is strong relationships between educators and families, rooted in trust and shared power.

On Thursday, March 28th, from 3 pm to 4:30 pm ET, please join the Flamboyan Foundation together with our partners at Attendance Works, Learning Heroes, and NAFSCE, to reveal research on the relationship between pre-pandemic family engagement and the current crisis in student attendance.


Family engagement isn’t a magic wand, but a potent tool capable of rewriting the narrative of chronic absenteeism. Discover actionable insights and hear how one school successfully improved attendance and student achievement. Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the transformative power of relationship building in tackling chronic absenteeism.

We hope you can join us for this important conversation. Thank you for being a champion of REAL Family Engagement!
