My child has been turned in for truancy. Now what?
The District Attorney’s office receives notice from the school when a student is legally truant. Once the notice has been received, the District Attorney’s office looks to see if the student has been referred for truancy before, and checks to see if there has been any previous court history. If the student qualifies, a letter will be sent home to the parents, and the student will be referred to the Truancy Program. If they do not qualify, then the District Attorney’s office will either forward the information to the appropriate agency, or file a truancy hearing with the court.
