The Attendance and Truancy Division is Lake County's truancy and dropout prevention program funded by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) since 1985 and administered by the Lake County Regional Office of Education.
The division is an intervention tool that is available to all schools in Lake County. Intervention occurs when schools refer students for poor attendance/truancy. Counselors complete an assessment of all students referred and, with the school's input, develop an individualized plan. The staff acts as referral agents and on-going liaisons between the schools and community resources.
