Abstract

Oak Avenue Elementary school is in Greenfield, California and serves students from grades kindergarten to sixth grade. The broader social problem within Greenfield is too few students graduating from high school. The agency problem is there are too many elementary school children absent from school. This was an educational intervention implemented at the school where information was provided to parents and students about the importance of school attendance. Posters were created to promote good attendance habits within the school and presentations were provided for parents and students. The presentations helped parents and students develop a better understanding of the importance of attending school every day. The purpose of the project was to help improve the attendance rate within the school. For the next step, the agency should continue promoting the importance of attendance to parents and keep rewarding students on their good attendance.
