Accurate tracking of the attendance of the students has not been found the most efficacious way of dealing with truancy.
Parents should take part actively in all activities of preventing truancy.
Curfews have helped during school hours in daytime that permit the community law enforcers to interrogate youth to establish if the are absent from school legitimately.
In places like New York, a number of unexcused absences can translate to failure in courses.
Parents can even be asked to take part in programs of parenting education.
The community may even find out the parents who are reluctant in dealing with truancy and sanction them.This could even make such parents lose the right to assistance meant for the public.This has taken place in States like Oklahoma and Maryland.Community success in preventing truancy has further put in place a comprehensive approach that emphasizes on sanctions and incentives for parents and the concerned truants.Such a process does not focus on improving procedures alone.Schools therefore should engage and fixing convenient periods and neutral settings for meetings with parents, establishing homework hotlines, hiring a parent liaison and taking into account the voice of the parents in making decisions for the school (Wisconsin Legislative Audit Bureau, 2000).The community based program works together with the schools to ensure that there is a firm sanction faced by students for truancy.The community and the school districts must communicate to their learners that there is zero tolerance for truancy.It has been found out by legislatures of the State that truancy can be reduced through linking grades of the student.A community based program creates a very significant incentive for parental responsibility.Thus, communities should establish the best approach of creating such incentives hence ensuring that the children attend school without failure.
