The ESSER Attendance and Re-engagement Project aims to reconnect youth and families that have disconnected from education. Additionally, it aims to prevent youth that are at risk of disengaging by investing in district and community capacity to directly support these students and families. It also aims to build attendance and engagement systems that will keep students engaged long-term.
