The consequences of truancy and high school dropout are staggering to individuals, families, schools, communities, and our nation; however, in spite of many truancy and dropout programs, the nation's truancy and dropout rates have not significantly decreased. Literature has documented the need for early interventions aimed at increasing school attachment and parental involvement as a method of increasing school achievement and school completion. Collaboration between parents and school educators has also been explored as means of intervention. The purpose of this curriculum is to educate using a parent-educator collaboration model to increase school attendance and graduation rates. The benefits of such collaboration are numerous for children, families, schools, communities, and our country.
