Rockford Truancy Update

That study was the subject of a United Way luncheon today. An NIU professor detailed the study which examined the social costs and ramifications of chronic truancy. Last year the Forest City lost out on hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars due to the plaguing problem.

Truancy not only affects our students but also our community. Rockford leaders believe one way to decrease the truancy rate is through education and community intervention. The school district has already seen a decrease in truancy since last year.
