The Attendance Service supports schools and students to manage and improve attendance.
About Attendance Services
Attendance Services combines the Non-Enrolled Truancy Service (NETS) and the District Truancy Service (DTS) into 1 integrated service. We aim to support schools to:
- effectively manage attendance
- reduce unjustified absence rates and non-enrolment
- reduce the time taken to return students to education.
The Attendance Service vision is: Every student attending school every day, as a foundation for engagement in learning and achievement.
Student attendance, along with effective teaching, has the greatest influence on student engagement and achievement.
How to make absence referrals to the Attendance Service
To make absence referrals to the Attendance Service, you’ll need to use the Attendance Service Application (ASA) and have a service provider.
Once a referral is generated in ASA, it goes straight to the service provider who will allocate the referral to an Attendance Advisor or Kaiawhina for action.
Training for schools in managing attendance
Our Training Services team run online training in managing attendance for school leaders and administration staff.
