Truancy Prevention INTRODUCTION
Truancy has been referred to as a "first step to a lifetime of problems" for youth (Garry, 1996). Truant students have a higher risk than nontruant students of involvement in drug and alcohol use, violence, and gang activity (U.S. Department of Education and U.S. Department of Justice, 1996). Police departments across the nation report that many students who are not in school during regular hours are committing crimes, including vandalism, shoplifting, and graffiti. According to a 1996 report, 44 percent of violent juvenile crime occurred between 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. in San Diego, Calif., (U.S. Department of Education and U.S. Department of Justice). Thus, student nonattendance is a problem that extends much further than the school. Truancy affects the student, the family, and the overall community (ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management and Office of Educational Research and Improvement, 1999). Examination of the truancy problem requires investigation into the possible reasons that students may choose to engage in truant behavior. Statistics have shown that a student's decision to skip or drop out of school might be the product of many factors, including family problems, drug and alcohol abuse, illiteracy, and teenage pregnancy (Cantelon and LeBoeuf, 1997). According to the U.S. Department of Education, when young people start skipping school, they are telling their parents, their school, and the community at large that they are in trouble and need our help if they are to keep moving forward in life (U.S. Department of Education and U.S. Department of Justice, 1996).

Truancy Mediation is a process that helps parents, caregivers, and schools find a fair and workable solution to children's truancy problems. The mediation process is a private, confidential way of communicating that does not focus on blame or fault. What is said in mediation is confidential, unless required by law to be reported to proper authorities - such as suspected child or elder abuse or neglect, threats of violence, or knowledge of crimes. The mediator is a neutral person who does not take sides. The role of the mediator is to make sure that everyone has an opportunity to speak, that all sides understand each other, and that both families and schools work together to resolve attendance and tardiness issues. Why mediation?

Truancy Prevention Brief and Resource Page
The National Center has created a brief truancy prevention publication that synthesizes the relevant research. The Prevention Brief highlights the extent of truancy in schools, the consequences and causes of truancy, and the cost benefits of reducing truancy. It also examines ineffective traditional approaches to reducing truancy and provides examples of effective strategies such as attendance policies, early intervention programs, alternatives to adjudication, court-based reduction programs, and alternative education programs.
