Every Day Counts case studies

While school attendance is primarily the responsibility and legal obligation of parents, schools across Queensland are implementing a range of creative, interesting, and successful strategies that have an impact on improving attendance.

Some of these strategies are focussed on attendance. Others are designed to enhance teaching, learning and the overall quality of the school environment, with flow-on benefits for attendance.

These case studies are provided to share ideas. School communities should consider a range of factors before deciding if these ideas might be useful in their local context including: the priorities of the school, local needs, reasons for absences, the age of students, level of parental interest, geographical location, and social and economic circumstances.

Thank you to the following schools for sharing their stories:
