Truancy In your schools has been a monumental problem across the country. When a student is truant, it is not enough just to say "That kid is a handful and he/she just does not care". We must show that child there is a better way. We have to show them the resources that are available to them so they can succeed in school. This starts out with a self evaluation of the student to tell us what they are running from or running to. Once the child sees that there is hope or else I will end up like that felon or that heroin addict if I don't stay in school. We are hoping this will curtail their truant behavior. JJO wants to couple this self evaluation with cutting edge technology that goes on the truants cell phone called VERIE. Verie is a technology that can tell a parent, dean, SRO or Truancy Officer where they child is and if he or she are in school. We want to make success stories our of our kids. Furthermore, we want to empower the JJO Agent with programs that work and make juveniles they deal with successful.
