As schools contend with higher chronic absenteeism, more misbehavior, and an apparent rise in student apathy, they may be overlooking the power of a surprisingly straightforward intervention: helping students feel connected. When students feel close to others at school—whether to a teacher they admire or a supportive peer group—research shows they’re more likely to attend and be engaged in class, and less likely to misbehave and suffer from poor mental health.

Join us as we learn how schools are creating the space for students to form strong bonds with each other and trusted adults, then harnessing the power of those connections to boost attendance and achievement, improve classroom management, and reduce the use of exclusionary discipline.
