Task Force Initiatives

The Task Force is piloting a wide range of multi-sector strategies that engage a diverse group of stakeholders to tackle the complex causes and consequences of truancy and absenteeism. These initiatives include: developing new models to connect schools with local resources, launching the NYC Success Mentor Corps, strengthening parent and student engagement, developing innovative data tools for the early identification of at-risk students, and requiring all Tier II shelters to offer homework centers to support attendance and school success for students in temporary housing.
