Functional Behavior Assessment of Absenteeism and Truancy (FBAAT) is an assessment and intervention system that will guide educators to evidence-based interventions for individual students who are chronically absent or truant.  Chronic absenteeism and truancy begin as early as first grade and are strongly correlated with dropping out of school. Lost school time affects learning, assignment completion, grades, promotion, and graduation rates. Truant students are four times as likely to commit a serious assault, five times more likely to report committing a serious property crime, and two times more likely to be arrested than peers who attend school regularly.  This training will provide participates with the knowledge and materials to implement the FBAAT within their educational settings (see attached flyer).
