Let's End Truancy (LET) - What happens to truant child?

The Case Goes to the DA's Office and...?

The D.A.’s office is the last stop for the truant.

Before a case is referred to the D.A.’s office, it has already gone through many stages.  Each stage was a chance for the truant to turn his or her life around and start attending school.

The truant and his or her parents have already received a letter from the D.A. stating that if the child does not attend school, the child and the parent could be prosecuted.

When the D.A. receives a case he or she will review it and decide whether or not to prosecute the parent, the child or both.
