Position Overview 

The Attendance Success Mentor Coordinator works with chronically absent students at Long Island City High School to address the barriers that prevent them from attending school daily. This role is responsible for student and family outreach via home visits, calls, text messages, and emails and providing individual and group mentorship, referrals for additional supportive services, and academic support to a caseload of up to 15 students.  

This role reports directly to the Community School Director (CSD) or other designated Zone 126 Supervisor and collaborates closely with school staff to identify chronically absent students and conduct broad-based practices to encourage attendance and increase student engagement of our wraparound supports that provide basic needs and address the challenges of students attending school on a regular basis.  

 What is chronic absenteeism? 

One in five New York City students is chronically absent, missing more than 18+ days of school during the school year. Missing school drastically affects a student's learning outcomes in academics and connectedness with their school community. On average, students with a Zone 126 Attendance Success Mentor and/or taking part in one of our wraparound support services attend up to 15 more days of school than the previous school year, as compared to students who are not Zone 126 affiliated. Students who attend school regularly and are not deemed chronically absent are more likely to have a higher GPA, attend college, and feel more connected to their school community.
