In addition to multiple interventions, we are also rewarding students who are achieving milestones such as perfect attendance with citations on their report cards and raffles to earn gift cards.  We also have a REMIND text message that can be delivered to each individual that signs up ~ with a remarkable resemblance to one of our own 🙂
