"Then Jesus answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.” And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour. Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?” So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief;[d] for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”--Matthew 17:17-21.
You're definitely in the right section to address this concern. Few questions that need to be addressed. First, what's the name of the school and is it public, private, parochial, or Christian? All this matters in as far as the rules and guideline as concerned. Things such as "meet me at the flagpole," having prayer teams in the school, having Christian clubs within the school, and or having Christian parents and supporters volunteer to do things at the school. Our high school allows parents, boosters, and people that want to volunteer their service at the school to do so after they go to the school district and give up the finger prints and await the results of the background check. Anyone that has to be alone with our students "MUST" get a background check.
Getting the local churches involved and partnering with the school and parents will also go a long way to strengthen school's attendance. After the attendance rectifies, what's next? How are we going to encourage parents, teachers, students, administration, etc... that the students will do work? The teachers will use tactics and structures that will allow students every opportunity to success via "HOT" (Higher Order Thinking).
Take it to God in prayer and have all come together at a certain time on this website and with you local churches to pray for this school. We must not only pray but pray with wholeheartedness. We must surrender to Christ and not do things through our own resources.
Defending the faith!!!!!
