Participating elementary schools identify and work with TANF children in grades one through eight, and their families, who are not attending school regularly. The school is responsible for defining irregular school attendance. For example, irregular school attendance may be defined as:

  • a combination of school defined absences, tardies, or early dismissals within a 30-day period; or
  • a pattern of absence/tardiness/early dismissal, such as absence every Friday within a 30-day period; or
  • a pattern of all children in the family being absent on the same day.
