The Truancy Prevention Program is an early intervention program. Its mission is to improve attendance of middle school children in Montgomery County Public schools by discovering the root causes of truancy, and assisting students and their families with issues that impact attendance.  


  • Confronting School Absenteeism

The Truancy Prevention Program confronts school absenteeism by addressing academic, school, personal, and family-related factors.  It is a voluntary and supportive program designed to keep children in school and families out of court. 

  • Improving Attitude on Education

The Truancy Prevention Program aims to improve attitude of students on education by cultivating a supportive and trusting environment that will eventually build a productive relationship between the family, the school and the program team. 

  • Helping to Achieve Full Potential

The Truancy Prevention Program gives special attention to attendance and academic needs of students to help them achieve their full potential.  After School Tutoring in small group setting is offered to students in some partner schools, to provide academic skills support in English, literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies. 

  • Providing Individualized Goal Setting and Mentoring 

The Truancy Prevention Program helps students identify and understand their areas of difficulty.  It provides individualized goal-setting, academic counseling and mentoring.
