How is school truancy handled?

The County Attorney's Office has a truancy program in which we partner with Carlton County Human Services, schools, and Carlton Community & Family Initiative’s Program to address the issues that lead to school absences and school failure. The program seeks to provide information and encouragement to students and parents to steer the student back on the path of regular attendance. The program includes an Attendance Intervention Meeting, a diversion program, and when all else fails the student and parent can be referred to Juvenile Court upon the filing of a Truancy Petition.
