Get 2 School initiative launched to tackle absenteeism
Student success starts with school attendance. Students who are absent from school miss important learning opportunities, which can be difficult, or even impossible to make up. The mission of the Get 2 School Network is to prioritize attendance by connecting its users to resources aimed at tackling chronic absenteeism. The Cleveland Browns Foundation, Ohio Department of Education and Proving Ground are deeply committed to this mission.
Speakers at the press event included Browns' owner Dee Haslam, former player Michael Lehan, Ohio's Superintendent of Public Institution Paolo DeMaria, Voice of the Browns Jim Donovan, and Executive Vice President of the Cleveland Browns Foundation Renee Harvey.
