United Independent School District implemented RaaWee K12 Truancy & Dropout Prevention System (TDPS) in the 2nd semester of school year 2014-2015. Within one year United ISD is noticing improvement in their attendance. With approx. 43,000 students enrolled in the District, comments from their Student Support Services Director are as follows:
"Since the implementation of TDPS in district, we have seen a positive interaction between parents and school officials in charge of addressing truancy and absences in general. Discovering ways to re-engage the student in the learning process becomes the main goal. By discovering the "barriers" and re-engaging our students in school, our district is seeing positive attendance rates throughout our district."

East Side Union High School District has selected RaaWee K12 Truancy & Dropout Prevention System (TDPS) to help them engage with students and parents in ways that were not available to them before. Better engagement methods, effective collaboration and integrated information management available with the implementation of TDPS paves the path for the district to reduce truancy and eliminate chronic absenteeism.
TDPS helps the District to apply the best practices for accurately tracking student attendance and quickly providing applicable interventions to every student who is need for help.

"RaaWee has allowed our district to better monitor and provide early interventions. Our district used this system during the second semester of the 2015-16 school year, and in just that one semester our district had achieved its highest attendance percentage rating in five years."
- Mr. Tony De La Rosa, Midland ISD
New law in Texas requires schools to place more focus and provide additional truant interventions to every child that is missing school. This has tremendously increased pressure and workload for school sites. To subside and manage the workload while improving ADA at its 38 campuses, Midland ISD chose to implement Collaboration & Interventions Module (C&I) from RaaWee K12 Truancy & Dropout Prevention System. C&I Module helps MISD to provide individualized truant interventions and efficiently document them in a centralized system.House Bill 2398 Compliance

- Ms. Lisa Lambright, Deer Park ISD
Deer Park Independent School District implemented RaaWee K12 Truancy & Dropout Prevention System (TDPS) to take away the time consuming tasks related to truancy & chronic absenteeism prevention from Assistant Principals and Attendance Officers/Clerks. TDPS helps DPISD staff to:
"I did my third cycle Attendance Report for the Board of Trustees on January, 24, 2017. In a simple comparison using 2015 data vs. 2016 data, our overall attendance has increased .75%. When our district was considerably smaller (5-6 years ago) our Deputy Superintendent would tell us if we could improve our attendance by 1% it would basically be equivalent to a $1,000,000 revenue increase. I would assume considering our size we’ve made that gain. I told Dr. Wilson that the only thing I really have to attribute this to is the efficiency of TDPS. I believe that the immediacy of students in need of attention helps us expedite interventions in addressing student needs.
I truly believe TDPS is beneficial to our campuses and the students of Denton ISD."

Absenteeism has long been a key indicator of a child and family in crisis. Chronic absenteeism harbingers social and community issues such as teenage pregnancy, shoplifting and vandalism. And the tie of school funding to average daily attendance has served to reinforce absenteeism as a top challenge of school districts nationwide.
Truant and chronic absentee behavior is clearly one of the major reasons for any student to eventually dropout of school. And although absenteeism can be identified by SIS or Attendance Software, this long-time challenge often stems from lack of processes, tools and resources for early recognition, efficient processing and timely intervention, including:
