Connect with a Community Prosecutor to prevent truancy

Community Prosecutors work with the County Office of Education and local school districts to prevent truancy, primarily by holding DA Mediations and assisting with monthly School Accountability Resource Boards (SARB) hearings. Through these programs, Community Prosecutors educate parents and students about the legal requirements to attend school and the benefits of a high school diploma. The Office also operates the Informal Truancy Hearing Program for Habitual Truants.
