Current SARB reports provide minimal information about intervention outcomes, so it is difficult to get the full picture. This bill ensures schools, districts, and counties can evaluate the success of their truancy intervention efforts.According to the Attorney General’s office, an estimated one million elementary school students are truant each year and 250,000 elementary school students miss 18 or more school days at a cost of $1.4 billion in lost funds to California school districts.
