  • Prepare for college, work or the military

                           

The Dangers of Truancy

An unexcused absence from school is called truancy.  Truancy puts students at risk for many problems, including:

  • poor grades
  • involvement with gangs
  • teen pregnancy
  • alcohol or other drug use
  • criminal behavior

Truancy also increases the risk that students will drop out of school.  And high school dropouts are more likely to:

  • be unemployed
  • earn less money than high school and college graduates
  • be dependant on public assistance
  • serve time in prison
