by Trejo, Mary Denice, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2019, 62; 13812548
Abstract (Summary)

Students who are chronically absent face a variety of challenges that are not always acknowledged by their teachers, supportive staff, and administration. Literature shows that these students are less likely to graduate high school, have increased likelihood to be involved in the justice system, and increased likelihood of mental health symptoms. These students face obstacles leading to their chronic absenteeism in school and without getting identified they do not get linked to proper services. The goal of this project was to write a grant proposal to fund a program for students who are chronically absent in high school to help them successfully graduate. This program is designed to educate students and families on the importance of school attendance and help them become advocates for their needs to help them graduate successfully. Actual submission and funding of the grant are not required for the completion of this project.
