The P16Plus Council of Greater Bexar County, an SA2020 Lead Partner in Education, and various city leaders and partners from our school districts and nonprofits celebrated the first-ever national Attendance Awareness Month last Fall. Since the launch, we have partnered with more than 30 partners and 5 ISDs who are working to make daily school attendance a priority in our community. P16Plus continues to communicate the importance of attendance in Pre-K through 12th grade and is working with schools and nonprofit organizations to focus on improving attendance habits for chronic non-attending students (those missing 10% or more of expected school days – excused or unexcused).

The P16Plus Council of Greater Bexar County is working collectively with various community partners to streamline youth between the ages of 16-24 to resources for education and training in high-demand careers. The Opportunity Youth Group is focused on re-engaging 16-24 year olds without and with high school credentials in the area and within school districts that represent 80% of where the drop-outs are occurring. The work of the Opportunity Youth Collaborative will create the first collective strategy for opportunity youth that connects to post-secondary credentials to in-demand occupations in Bexar County.
