TRUANCY

HOW WE HELP

At West40, we understand the critical importance of addressing truancy issues and promoting regular attendance among students. Our approach fosters academic success, supports social and emotional development, identifies early warning signs, and establishes positive attendance habits that will benefit students throughout their educational journey.

WHO WE SERVE

West40 partners with your district to serve K-3 truant students. We develop attainable attendance goals for students and walk alongside them to help remove barriers preventing school attendance. In an effort to serve students in grades 4-12, West40’s Truancy Outreach Director is available for consultation through the use of West40’s WELCOME Tool. This assessment is designed to help school leaders identify school strengths and explore areas for improvement, in an effort to ensure a sense of belonging and active participation amongst all stakeholders.
