To achieve in school, a student must be in school. A simple concept, yet the rates of absenteeism for boys of color are unacceptably high. The reasons behind their absences are varied, but these barriers to school attendance are not insurmountable. Schools can provide strategic support and guidance to help boys improve attendance and succeed in school.

COSEBOC members are invited to participate in a free webinar to learn more about the issue of school absenteeism and strategies for keeping boys of color engaged in school and on a path to graduation. Registration information was sent via email, and is also available by sending an email to rbryant@coseboc.org.

  • Dr. Robert Balfanz, Director of the Everyone Graduates Center, John Hopkins University
  • Dr. David Heiber, Executive Director, Concentric Educational Solutions
  • Ms. Doranna Tindle, Principal, Friendship Public Charter School in Washington, DC
