Every year, 7 million U.S. children miss a month or more of school. As early as sixth grade, student attendance is the leading indicator of high school graduation, and by ninth grade, chronically absent students stand a 20% chance at earning their diploma. Kinvolved galvanizes students, parents, teachers, leaders, and community stakeholders around a shared goal: To increase student achievement by minimizing absenteeism. They take a holistic approach to fighting chronic absenteeism, combining technology tools and human interventions to change the deeply ingrained behaviors and external factors affecting student attendance, including poverty, racism, and socio-economic exclusion. - KiNVO is a user-friendly attendance and communications tool for educators, parents, and students: https://kinvolved.com/kinvo-software/ - Community Summits convene stakeholders around a shared vision for attendance: https://kinvolved.com/community-summits/ - Expert-led PD helps districts manage the implementation of new attendance policies and launch KiNVO: https://kinvolved.com/professional-services/ Learn more: - Watch our brief overview video: https://vimeo.com/265386383 - Read our 2017 Impact Report: https://kinvolved.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Kinvolved_Impact_Report_2016-2017.pdf
