An education is one of the most valuable tools we can provide to our children to ensure their future success. Texas House Bill 2398 was passed into law during the 84th Legislative Session with the ultimate goal of keeping children in school and facilitating their graduation, while also decriminalizing truancy. The Uniform Truancy Policy Committee of Johnson County recognizes there are often underlying factors that contribute to a child’s truant behavior. This Committee believes it is important to utilize all available resources to assist truant children to identify and overcome the barriers that affect their attendance and performance in school. With this in mind and in accordance with the framework established in House Bill 2398, the Committee has established the following Uniform Truancy Policy for Johnson County.
