How much funding does your district leave on the table?

By Jill Lubow

No matter how hard school districts strive to better serve the children in their communities, the reality is that if students don’t show up to school, none of it matters.

On top of that, districts lose funding when students are absent, making it even harder for teachers and leaders to achieve their goals.

Just like the communities we partner with, Kinvolved is committed to helping more kids make it to school each day—and the initial results from our 2017–2018 impact study tell us there’s reason to be excited:

Districts using KiNVO to track attendance and engage families average a 2% increase in average daily attendance (ADA) in their first year—and that translates to a serious budget boost.

We want to help districts find more funds to educate, engage, and inspire their students, so we looked at state funding formulas across the country and built customized calculators you can use to find out how improving attendance can also improve your district’s bottom line.

Using the calculator is easy:

  • Go to https://kinvolved.com/attendance-calculator/
  • Select your state from the dropdown
  • Enter your district’s ADA (if your state doesn’t have a specialized ADA formula, we may ask for your per-student funding amount, too)

We’ll automatically estimate your funding increase. Then if you’re interested in turning that estimate into a real-life return, get in touch.

For chronically absent students, the more qualified hands on deck—those with watchful eyes, listening ears, and open hearts—the better the chance they have to succeed. This e-book showcases the voices, and heartbeats, of our educators, who share how their strategies for building student and family relationships, having tough conversations, and celebrating bright spots. The teachers and leaders featured here face real challenges and save real lives every day, and the ability to see things from their perspective drives our work.
