OVERVIEW

The Truancy Court is a member of the Truancy Prevention Program (TPP) along with Albuquerque Public Schools (Court Liaison Office and Albuquerque Public School Police); Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office; Children, Youth & Families Dept. (Juvenile Probation/Parole Dept. and Protective Services Division); City of Albuquerque (Albuquerque Police Dept. and Family & Community Services Dept.); Juvenile Detention Center; Juvenile District Attorney's Office; and Second Judicial District Children's Court. After four un-excused absences, the parent and child should participate in the TPP. If the child's attendance improves, the intervention ends at that time.
