EveryDay Intervention is based on the research by Dr. Todd Rogers, our chief scientist and a professor of public policy at Harvard University, on using behavioral science to bring families into the learning community with a focus on attendance. The result is our low-lift, evidence-based intervention program. We monitor districts’ attendance data and proactively send families of students at risk of becoming academically offtrack due to absenteeism personalized communication via text and mail—which we refer to as “nudges.”Request a Demo
We integrate with your student information system to receive daily attendance data.
We monitor your attendance data.
Families receive personalized nudges by text and mail in their home language. The nudges are customized based on their child’s grade level, school, and level of absenteeism.
We provide actionable reporting three times per year to help districts identify trends, patterns, and barriers to attendance.
Our analysts monitor your district’s attendance data and ensure that students and families get the support they need.
Personalized nudges are sent to families of at-risk and chronically absent students.
The Bot helps families with barrier-specific needs by directing them to the right resource or connecting them directly to our Family Support Team for more complex issues.
Our personalized mail nudges help families better understand and overcome barriers to attendance.
We provide families one-on-one support by phone to connect them to resources that address their children’s attendance barriers.
Why text and mail? Our strategically layered nudges are sent via text and mail to ensure that all families have access to the resources they need to support their children’s attendance. Oftentimes, families from communities experiencing economic marginalization don’t have consistent access to the internet or an accurate phone number in the district’s school information system, so mail is the best way to support them.¬ The USPS’s change of address service ensures that mail nudges reach even highly mobile families. We flag incorrect mailing addresses and phone numbers for districts while prompting families to keep their information as up to date as possible.
Research shows that mail-based interventions help promote positive attendance over time, while text-based communications support short-term actions needed to make long-term progress.
Districts implementing our EveryDay Intervention can add our Truancy Module to take a more student-centered approach to truancy. Our Truancy Support pushes notifications based on communications developed through research conducted by EveryDay Labs’ cofounder Dr. Todd Rogers and Attendance Works’ executive director Hedy Chang.Read the Research
