Attendance support program
Attendance support program staff provide direct assistance to schools for attendance matters.
Attendance support officers
Attendance support officers, including Aboriginal Student Liaison Officers and Home School Liaison Officers, work with schools and their students, families and communities, to promote attendance.
Schools are able to apply for attendance support, based on the needs of their school, including:
- whole school strategy support and school planning
- cohort support
- individual student support.
Applying for attendance support
Before applying for attendance support, schools are encouraged to consider strategies and interventions appropriate to the underlying cause and school context that may assist with non-attendance concerns.
The current application process for this support is the application for home school liaison program support (PDF 163KB).
All applications are considered by the attendance support program manager. If approved, an attendance support officer will work with the school on strategies to improve attendance.
