Truancy Reduction Program Tool Kit Available
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention is offering an online truancy reduction tool kit for communities interested in instituting a truancy reduction program. The tool kit covers such topics as truancy’s extent, causes, and connections to dropping out of school and delinquency, as well as lessons learned from the evaluation of truancy reduction programs. It provides resources and information to guide communities, schools, and parents in addressing the problem of truancy.
