The International Network for School Attendance (INSA) exists for all those who wish to promote school attendance and respond to school attendance problems. It aims to compile, generate, evaluate, and disseminate information, assessment, and intervention strategies.
INSA is run on a voluntary basis but it is growing fast and developing initiatives despite limited resources. Whether you’re an academic who'd like to share research, a practitioner looking for successful interventions, or a policymaker keen to link up with colleagues in other countries, INSA is here for you.
A wealth of information is freely available on the website and we encourage you to contribute; get in touch via our contact page. In addition, INSA membership is only 70 EUR per year. Members have access to: videos of webinars and 50+ presentations from the 2019 conference; a Discussion Forum for consultation and collaboration with practitioners and researchers around the world; the quarterly newsletter INStAnt!; and discounted registration for the next conference.
INSA is delighted to collaborate with the journal Orbis Scholae for a special issue on 'Recording, Reporting, & Using School Attendance Data'. We welcome your proposal.
INSA's 2nd Conference is on October 13 and 14, 2021. It's an exciting online event addressing global perspectives on current themes for school attendance.
