The School Attendance Initiative is designed to improve elementary school attendance. The goal is to help students establish consistent patterns of school attendance and prevent future truancy. The School Attendance Initiative links DHS, elementary
schools, and established community agencies to help remove barriers that prevent children from regularly attending school.
