Attendance Matters: Connecting for Student Success Regional Meetings

Attendance Matters: The Fall Connecting for Student Success regional meetings sponsored by Maine Department of Education and Count ME In are happening statewide.  You can attend a regional meeting that is convenient for you.

  • Tuesday, October 16 in Bangor 12:00 to 2:30
  • Wednesday, October 17 in Presque Isle 12:00 – 2:30
  • Thursday, November 1 in Augusta 9:00 – 11:30
  • Thursday, November 29 in Portland 8:30 – 11:00 (Full)

Attendees will hear schools and agencies share updates on programs and effective strategies as well as a short presentation on anxiety-steps to support students. Sessions are free but registration is required.  

Attendance matters because early absences can affect later achievement, since students can miss some of the key building blocks for learning.  Absences add up- just two days a month can mean 18 absences a year.
