Abstract: 

This brief provides an overview of strategies that schools, districts, and communities are implementing to help students experiencing homelessness attend school every day. To overcome chronic absenteeism, educators are helping students meet their basic needs, devising creative ways with transportation support, investing in evidence-based truancy reduction and prevention programs, implementing early warning systems, and taking a team approach to attendance. The brief highlights programs using these strategies and provides additional resources. (author abstract modified)
