Developing a Problem-Solving Truancy Court
Rather than take traditional punitive approaches to truancy, problem-solving courts assist in overcoming the underlying causes of truancy in a child’s life by engaging the family and community partners in collaborative support of the child. Some truancy courts are held on the school grounds. Others reorganize to form special truancy court dockets within the juvenile or family court. Either way, the ultimate goal of these collaborative efforts between courts and schools is to achieve regular school attendance and dismiss truancy petitions. Come learn whom to involve and how. The training will be lead by retired Judge Dennis Maes, developer of the highly successful truancy court program in Pueblo, CO.
