Office of Truancy & School Attendance

Young students encouraging others to Strive for Less Than 5 days absent 

We provide regional truancy/school attendance services, helping connect families to the resources they need so they can promote their children's achievement and success in school by regular participation in their educational programs.

Every day in school is an opportunity for learning, and every minute counts. That's why we encourage families and students to Strive for Less Than 5 day absent each school year.
