An Attendance Intervention: Using Technology to Involve Teachers and Parents
Date of Award
Master of Education (MEd)
An attendance intervention was performed at a school district in Maine, which also tested the effectiveness of using technology for implementation. Computer technologies track student attendance rates, and efficiently communicate issues to stakeholders with minimal administrative overhead. All students at the Oxford Hills School District received the intervention during the FY2013 school year and attendance rates were compared against prior years. Results were somewhat inconclusive, but suggest that attendance gains might be achieved with further refinement of the intervention.
