Engaging a County-Wide Truancy Task Force

Presented for the WSSWA 2020 Fall Conference

A Virtual Workshop Presented by

Jaime Dobner, MSW and Luke Pinion, Ed. S.

The School District of Waukesha was involved in a County-led truancy task force for numerous years. In the Winter of 2018, the district assumed the facilitation of this task force and completely restructured the format, process, and scope of the committee. This session will go into detail about the processes and outcomes of this work, which spanned over a year's worth of collaborative, deep work. This includes preliminary survey data obtained from all 19 school districts in the county and analyzing this data to identify the primary focus of the task force. Once the focal points were identified, we then established a structure and sequence for the task force. We will share tools that were used in this process to organize the work and keep the work moving forward. Additionally, we will share out our first truancy task force summary report, which includes various resources and information.

Members: $20

Retiree and Student members: $10

Registration Deadline: December 7th at noon

Purpose and Goals of the Workshop:

1. Attendees will walk away with proactive resources for intervening around truancy in their schools and districts

2. Further understanding of how you can work collaboratively between the educational, county, and juvenile justice agencies.

3. Understand the nuances and process that occurs on the county and youth justice end after a habitual truancy referral is submitted by the school (flow chart, definitions, sample letters, guidelines).
