Supporting Student Success and Diversion through Truancy Prevention (Webinar)

Event Dates
Truancy Prevention is not a new endeavor in Indian Country.

Many communities are working to address truancy and chronic absenteeism among Tribal youth.

Engagement with local and community partners is essential to supporting youth as they navigate the education system.

Diversion programs that can provide supportive environments for youth to succeed are more important than ever.

This two-part learning series will discuss truancy prevention, chronic absenteeism, and the short and long-term impact of the same on Tribal youth.

Session Two Learning Objectives:
- Hear a facilitated dialogue with the Pascua Yaqui Tribe and Santee Sioux Tribe truancy prevention programming staff.

- Compare and contrast successful strategies implemented to support local Tribal youth and engage cross-county and educational partners.

- Discuss implementation of an effective truancy prevention program within the local Tribal community.
