Chapter 7 covers approaches to address enduring and severe cases of problematic school absenteeism. These interventions refer to those directed toward students with complex or longstanding problems who require a broader approach and progress monitoring across various areas. This includes alternative educational programs, legal strategies, and accommodation plans. Chapter 7 also offers ideas about working with youths who have already departed the school system. In addition, guidelines are presented to address challenging scenarios and examples of various pathways to graduation that do not necessarily involve full-time attendance in a regular classroom setting.
