BronxWorks, an organization providing social services and programming, held a kick-off event for an new initiative to improve attendance and prevent dropouts at P.S. 42 on Friday, January 30. As part of the new Community Schools Strategy financed by a $290,000 grant, BronxWorks will assist both students and teachers to prevent excessive absenteeism. CSS is an outgrowth of the United Way’s Attendance Improvement Dropout Prevention program. According to BronxWorks, about 45 schools need help in the Claremont area.
