• Focus on Attendance is a partnership between The Allegheny County Department of Human Services, The Allegheny Intermediate Unit, the Fifth Judicial District of Pennsylvania and local schools. 

     

    This program works to ensure that attendance issues do not get in the way of educational success by working with Student Service staff to connect students and families to resources within their communities.

     

    Focus on Attendance can also be used as a Community Based Attendance Improvement Program by school staff and is approved by the 5th Judicial District as an Adjudication Alternative Program for the Magisterial District Courts.
