Research Scientist

Amy Schulting's current research is focused on the design and implementation of teacher-led truancy prevention efforts in the primary grades. Along with her colleagues, Philip Cook, Kenneth Dodge, Elizabeth Gifford, and Erika Hallerman, she is implementing The Early Truancy Prevention Project, funded by a Development and Innovation Grant from the Institute of Education Sciences. The Early Truancy Prevention Project takes a multi-pronged approach, integrating universal teacher home visits, teacher-led interventions for chronically-absent students, and innovative technology to guide and document teacher intervention efforts.
