What We Do

Every Day Matters! Attendance Program (EDMAP) is a program involving the following agencies: Chisago County Attorney’s Office, Human Services, Court Services; all Chisago County public school districts and the St. Croix River Education District. The EDMAP is a new school attendance program that takes a positive pro-active approach to addressing school absenteeism and encourages families to improve the student’s school attendance. Research shows that a child’s engagement in school is critically important to developing prosocial behaviors. Poor school attendance or minimal engagement will negatively impact the opportunities available to students later in life. The goal of EDMAP is to reduce school absenteeism through delivering constant and consistent messages on school attendance along with an accountability system. This is accomplished through the involvement of the above agencies working together with students and their families to identify and eliminate the barriers to school attendance.

Who We Serve

The EDMAP program serves students and families who are enrolled in Chisago Lakes School District, North Branch Area School District and Rush City School District.

As of 2015-2016 serving youth in 6th to 9th grade who meet truancy criteria specified through the Truancy Protocol , least 5 unexcused absences and who have been invited to Attendance Intervention Meeting.

How We Impact

Research shows that a child’s engagement in school is critically important to developing prosocial behaviors.

Service Activities

  • The EDMAP coordinator will systematically assess the extent to which students are engaged in school or exhibiting signs of school withdrawal through monitoring risk factors such as attendance, tardiness, behavioral referrals, poor academic performance, and in­ school or out-of-school suspensions.
  • Attend regular problem solving team meetings at each school district to develop a comprehensive intervention plan for students with truancy problems.
  • Identify resources that are or could be used to implement a problem solving system for persistent truancy problems.
  • Upon request, work directly with building staff on implementation of a building-wide attendance imitative.
  • The EDMAP coordinator will participate in the County's staff consultation meetings.

Pathways

Action Plan

1. Identify school representatives on attendance from each school - SCRED and EDMAP representatives will coordinate. Consider developing partnerships through this process.

2. Review components of interventions and identify specific areas that are in purview of EDMAP services.

3. Base line data could include 6th- 9th students who failed initial interventions. This may be 10 day letter sent, or 6th day unexcused letter. Each school should have an easy way to extract the data.

4. Identify district process for referral and document in order to further evaluate.

5. Test interventions with schools that clarify protocols.

6. Identify which schools are documenting interventions and use that data specifically to note impact .

A decision-making model curriculum is used incorporating school to career skills of communication techniques, problem solving, writing exercises and budgeting.
