This chapter begins by covering Tier 1 strategies that refer to school-wide practices designed to reduce overall levels of absenteeism and improve attendance rates. These practices could be implemented in conjunction with existing programs, such as academic or antibullying programs, or they could be implemented as stand-alone techniques to specifically focus on school attendance. Important Tier 1 strategies can focus on improving school climate, enhancing parental involvement, implementing health-based and mental health-based strategies, promoting safety and social-emotional learning, and re-examining district-wide policies. The chapter also covers Tier 3 strategies that are designed to address severe and chronic cases of school refusal behavior. Important Tier 3 strategies can focus on alternative educational programs and schools, mentors, early education, family, and health services, court referral and community services, and a team approach.
