Why are some children resistant towards going to school? Are kids being bullied? Do they dislike their teacher? Is the work too hard? Facilitator will discuss the factors that contribute towards children’s apprehension to attend school, as well as strategies that parents can implement to support children in their educational endeavors. Participants will receive data related to the impact of student truancy on their academic, social and emotional well-being, as well as the legal ramifications of students not attending school on a consistent basis. Facilitator will share community resources with families to assist in getting children to school and keeping them in school on a consistent basis.
