Learner Engagement and Attendance Program - LEAP

How To

LEAP home visits are voluntary, scheduled opportunities for a school district member or partner to go, in pairs, to the home of a student with prior chronic absence (or other location) to meet with a parent or guardian for the purpose of strengthening the school-family relationship in a positive and relational manner.

The conversation is focused on families’ strengths and capabilities, as well as their aspirations for their child. The visitors are there to learn from families, not to enforce attendance policies or sanctions.

Ideally, families receive multiple home visits that support building relationships over time.
