    Overview of Program

    The Attendance Awareness Program serves the counties that lie in two Regional Offices of Education. These offices encompass LaSalle County ROE and Marshall/Putnam/Woodford ROE.

    The program provides intervention and prevention to enable at-risk students to increase their attendance and academic achievement with a long term goal of graduation.

    Services provided include coordination with families and schools, educational assessment and student/family counseling culminating in the development of an IOEP. The IOEP includes tutoring and/or mentoring, referral to school sponsored programs and social service/community agencies.

    The philosophy of the program is that early intervention, early in the child's school career and early in the problem, is the most successful intervention.
