Public Invited to Attend Truancy Town Hall on Jan. 24
Learn how APS is dealing with truancy, seek the advice of experts and provide suggestions for keeping kids in school.
Recognizing the severity of the consequences of habitual absenteeism, APS is turning to the community for help during a three-day Truancy Blitz Jan. 22-24. With the motto, “You Must be Present to Win,” the district is stressing that students who aren’t in the classroom aren’t receiving a full education, which means they often won’t win in life.
Join us for a Truancy Town Hall on Saturday, Jan. 24, from 10 a.m.-noon at Manzano High.
The Town Hall will kick off with a short formal presentation to introduce the audience to what APS is currently doing to address truancy, followed by a community discussion in which participants will have an opportunity ask a panel of experts specific questions about anything that involves truancy. In addition, the audience will have an opportunity to suggestion solutions that can help prevent truancy.
