Chicago Educator Webinar Series
Students who aren’t in school—no matter the reason—can’t learn. In Chicago and across the country, a staggering number of children are chronically absent, often at a very young age and often without attracting attention. While the causes are multi-fold, one stands out as especially significant: student health. Understanding and addressing the health-related factors surrounding chronic absenteeism is a proven strategy for supporting attendance and learning.
This webinar will help educators:
- Understand and address the health-related factors surrounding chronic absenteeism
- Assist schools in incorporating health and wellness into their school improvement plans to help increase student attendance
- Learn practical ways schools can leverage CPS wellness policies to promote student health and wellness
