Truancy Prevention

Organization: Collaborative Solutions for Communities (CSC)

Students with five to nine unexcused absences receive wraparound services that assist them and their families in addressing the family, school, and student factors that prevent them for attending school regularly. Activities include awareness/outreach; identification/referral/intake; and enrollment; and intervention. Additionally, families are offered multi-tiered, individualized services that are designed to accommodate their availability and level of commitment to address issues that impede school attendance. This includes home visitation, case management, and other services, to include: parenting workshops/training/family strengthening events; music education and physical fitness for the middle schoolers. CSC works with elementary and middle schools throughout the district.
