In October 2015, the Obama Administration responded to this epidemic by launching the Every Student, Every Day: A National Initiative to Address and Eliminate Chronic Absenteeism with a goal to decrease it by at least 10 percent each school year.

School Social Workers Resources & Links Update
The School Social Services department continues to work hard on keeping our school communities abreast of current resources during these challenging times of Covid-19. Our school social workers are working remotely as schools will remain closed for the duration of the school year. Each week as our resource partners add resources, training and materials that could benefit our community at large we will try to post on this site. We pray that everyone stays safe and continue practicing social distancing.
