INFORMATION
Training Overview

Where did your students go? Discover how to reverse declining enrollment.

Declining enrollment and chronic absenteeism are acute issues for nearly all school districts, regardless of geographic location or socioeconomic status. Recent research studies reported a 3% decline in school enrollment during the pandemic (the worst since World War II) and highlighted an uptick in home-schooling.

The COVID-19 disruptions of the past two years have most dramatically affected younger students, disadvantaged students, and students with disabilities. Many drifted away from school and have not yet returned.

You can adopt specific strategies this summer to increase enrollment for the 2022–23 school year and keep students in classrooms after they return.
