Hosted by the Stanford-SFUSD Partnership, this session will highlight two recent research studies. The first study describes chronic absenteeism trends by period attendance and identifies correlating factors. The second study examined the implementation of the Mission Promise Neighborhood initiative in its fourth year. Among the initiative's many approaches are efforts to enhance the quality of family engagement and school culture and climate. We will discuss these findings as they relate to each other and San Francisco Unified School District's Central Office Strategies in Action: Family Empowerment & Safe Supportive Schools.
