District Innovation Reverses Truancy – Podcast Episode 188 | Classnotes Podcast 188
Classnotes Podcast (December 20, 2018) Schools across the country are learning from experience what research is showing that zero tolerance discipline policies are pushing students away. The East Central school district in Texas took a hard look at how it was approaching attendance and truancy and made a concrete, systemic shift that has led truancy rates to plummet.
In this episode, Dr. Nilka Avilés talks with superintendent, Roland Toscano, about his district’s transformation that started by listening to the traumatic needs of students and customizing resources. The district engaged the community and placed a new emphasis on providing a high-quality education for all students.
