Project Stay-In: Submit Truancy Referrals
When a student has 9 unexcused absences from school, the school should complete and submit the 1st Referral Form (linked below) to the ROE26 truancy case worker. The ROE26 truancy case worker will then generate a ROE26 truancy letter, which will be sent to the family.
If truancy continues, and the student has 1-5 unexcused absences, the school will complete the 2nd Project Stay In Referral form (linked below) and send it to the ROE26 truancy case worker. The ROE26 truancy case worker will generate the ROE26 truancy letter #2, which will be sent to the family.
The third truancy referral should be submitted to the ROE26 truancy case worker when the student misses another 1-5 unexcused absences after the second referral. The ROE26 truancy case worker will generate the third ROE26 truancy letter, which will be sent to the family.
Truancy Referral Training Video
We do not start fresh at the beginning of the school year. We start from the date of the FIRST referral.
For example, if Referral #1 was sent on 3/23/22, the student will be monitored for 180 days (1 FULL CALENDAR YEAR: 3/23/22-3/23/23). If the student received the first referral on 3/23/22, and the school reports student has missed 5 days out of 10 on the new school year, school will start where student left off and send the truancy officer a 2nd Referral.
