The San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office takes truancy very seriously. We know that it is often the “gateway” to juvenile delinquency and, later, more serious adult crime. Making sure that kids go to school and stay in school is very important for two reasons.
One is to help kids stay out of trouble and out of the court system. The best way to do this is by making sure kids stay in school. The second reason is that a good education is important to a child’s future.
Children are our most important resource. It’s up to us as adults to see that our children get the best education available. Students, it’s up to you to stay in school so that you are ready to lead us into the future.
