Truancy Prevention



Right Track Truancy Prevention 



Truants' Alternative and 
Optional Education Program 
In September 2014, the Monroe-Randolph Regional Office of Education was one of many Regional Offices of Education across the state of Illinois to be awarded the Truants’ Alternative and Optional Education Program (TAOEP) grant.  The TAOEP program is established to offer modified instructional programs or other services designed to prevent students from missing school, or dropping out.  Right Track Truancy Prevention (RTTP), the Truants' Alternative and Optional Education Program offered by the Monroe/Randolph Regional Office of Education, is a collaborative effort among the ROE, school districts in Monroe and Randolph counties, parents, Perandoe Special Education District, local support and law enforcement agencies.  The shared vision is to diminish and prevent chronic truancy and dropout by providing expedient and appropriate interventions and supports for students who are showing academic, behavioral, cognitive and/or affective at-risk indicators.  Right Track Truancy Prevention program accentuates prevention, intervention, and remediation for truants.

Truancy Board
In last response, the  RTTP delinquency team will deliver the more punitive elements of the program, with hopes to remediate the situation.  Tickets, Truancy Review Board, and court proceedings will be followed should student, family, school and community efforts fail in redirecting the student to the “right track”.  A Truancy Review Board is an intricate part of the Right Track Truancy Program services. Both Monroe and Randolph counties participate with Right Track and have county and city ordinances that allows for the issuance of truancy tickets.  Parent/legal guardians of students referred to the program will be responsible to insure their student maintains good school attendance. Failure to comply with proper attendance procedures will result in the student and parent/legal guardian being referred to the Truancy Review Board. 
The Truancy Review Board consists of members from local agencies who provide services that may be beneficial to the student and/or the parent/legal guardian. Students and parents who fail to meet with the board or to comply with the orders of the Truancy Review Board will be referred to the States Attorney for the appropriate county.



Vision
The Monroe-Randolph Right Track Truancy Prevention program is a collaborative effort among the ROE, school districts, parents, Perandoe Special Education District, local support and law enforcement agencies.  The shared vision is to diminish and prevent chronic truancy and dropout by providing expedient and appropriate interventions and supports for students who are showing academic, behavioral, cognitive or affective at-risk indicators.

School, Family, and Student Support
The RTTP staff delivers school support in the areas of data collection,  at-risk identification, appropriate  intervention, monitoring and mentoring for students who are identified as at risk or currently displaying behaviors that lead to dropping out of school.  Interventionists work directly with the students, school counselors, mentors, family, and community resources to identify and deliver support needs and options.  Both supplemental services and optional education services are available.
