RCP has joined forces with Riverside County Office of Education (RCOE) to promote a localized “Attendance Works” campaign, particularly among its most impacted regions.
Utilizing County absenteeism data from the California Department of Education, RCP and RCOE collectively determined the highest impacted areas of chronic absenteeism among Riverside County school districts. The districts identified fell within RCP’s Desert and Mid-County regions.
Respective RCP field offices administered surveys to our adult and juvenile populations towards the end of the 2021-2022 school year. Information collected included school involvement, attendance policies, and communication, as well as home life, responsibilities, and expectations for the mutual purpose of seeking solutions.
