AimTruancy Solutions works to reduce truancy rates and help students stay in school through an innovative mentoring and monitoring program. Founded in Dallas, Texas, Aim Truancy is expanding their offices to Austin, and have chosen to locate their new branch at our very own Chase Northcross building! The program begins by carefully monitoring students through a hand-held GPS device. After helping students learn accountability, the program also works to instill self-motivation and positive habits. As a result, students find it rewarding and fulfilling to attend classes and work towards graduation.
From their website:
The AimTruancy program is a proven success at getting kids back in school. We have achieved record attendance gains in district after district. But our truancy program does more than boost attendance. The intense involvement of personal mentors helps students reshape their attitudes about schools, parents, teachers, and their own potential. They learn to become good students. And good citizens.
