Early Warning Truancy Program


Parents and students will be referred to the Early Warning Truancy Program on the fifth (5th) unexcused absence and on the fifteenth (15th) tardy to school.  Referral to the program includes the following steps:

1.    The parent will receive official notification by U.S. Mail.  The notice will require the parent and student to report to the Municipal Court located at the City/County Government Plaza.

2.    The parent and student will meet with the Attendance Officer and the District Attorney.  The Attendance Officer will review the system’s Attendance Policy; the District Attorney will review the State of Alabama’s Attendance Laws and consequences of breaking the laws.

3.    If the parent and student fail to appear at the scheduled Early Warning Truancy Program, the parent may receive legal notice and a court referral.
