Truancy

Promoting quality education, leadership, and support for the Districts of Boone and Winnebago Counties

The Illinois School Code states that children between the ages of 7 and 17 must attend school. The Regional Superintendent is the Truant Officer for the Boone-Winnebago Region, and office personnel work with the schools and other agencies to help the parents resolve issues related to truancy in order to avoid having to appear to court. However, if that route is not successful, the Regional office represents the truant student/family in court to determine another plan to solve the truancy problem.
