Truancy-Related

This section provides information on specific strategies that schools, parents and communities can use to ensure a comprehensive approach to the truancy problem. The examples of anti-truancy programs help to fulfill requirements of Senate Bill 98 by offering districts examples of anti-truancy programs. A number of different approaches may be utilized, but some of the most successful include improving the high school experience, such as the Project 720 model, or accessing higher education courses through a dual enrollment strategy. Successful truancy reduction practices, on both the state and national level, are described. Feel free to contact the schools and organizations for additional information.
