Parents can even be asked to take part in programs of parenting education.The community may even find out the parents who are reluctant in dealing with truancy and sanction them.Accurate tracking of the attendance of the students has not been found the most efficacious way of dealing with truancy.
Introduction Truancy in schools has been a major problem for decades now.
Schools, communities and the government at large have all been involved in coming up with suitable interventions to curb this menace.
The basic role of members of taking part in the program is to make informed decisions on how to deal with truancy in schools.
Truancy is a problem which is rooted more in the community than the school might actually be found to cause.
There can never be a better influence that that which the parent commands in making sure that the child attends school daily.
The parent plays a good role in educating the child on how education is used to define the future.A community based program creates a very significant incentive for parental responsibility.Thus, communities should establish the best approach of creating such incentives hence ensuring that the children attend school without failure.Community Based Intervention Program A community based program is composed of a team of fellows in the community.They could include psychologists, workers in public health, social workers, economic assistance employee along with members of organizations in the community.Positive incentives for parents found responsible who promote the regular attendance of the child in school can also be offered.The incentives could be increased right to take part in programs funded by the public (Baker et al., 2001).This could even make such parents lose the right to assistance meant for the public.This has taken place in States like Oklahoma and Maryland.Curfews have helped during school hours in daytime that permit the community law enforcers to interrogate youth to establish if the are absent from school legitimately.In places like New York, a number of unexcused absences can translate to failure in courses.
