2014 Regional Materials

Regional participants heard from state and national experts about the importance of regular school attendance and successful strategies for reducing truancy. Leaders in each county have been asked to develop partnerships and a local plan that makes sense for the community.  The partners include educators, judges, law enforcement, social services agencies, and others.

Participants at the Regionals came away energized and eager to put plans into action that help young people succeed in school and in life.

Here are the links to documents related to the Regionals separated by region:
