    • Work with parents to assist them in finding appropriate community agencies and resources, such as Job Corps., SAM and psychological services

    • Attend assigned District Justic and Juvenile court proceedings

    • Canvas assigned areas of the city

    • Work with assigned alternative school programs and provide service to them

    • Work with school nurses and school counselors to address attendance issues

    Frequently Asked Questions
    Q. How do I know how many days of school my child has missed? 
    Each student's report card includes a list of excused, unlawful and tardy days. In addition, phone calls are made at 6 p.m. to inform parents if their child was absent from school that day. Parents could also receive phone calls from the Home and School Visitors or a Parent Outreach Assistant.
