Joint Interagency Truancy Reduction Initiative
This initiative has all three educational sectors working with police in the metropolitan area to help reduce truancy from school and increase safety in our communities. Any children located by police during school hours outside school grounds who are unaccompanied by an adult and do not have a leave pass will be returned to their enrolled school. If your child is collected by police and returned to school, a staff member from the College will call to inform you and will send a Parental Information Slip to you. Parents will be given the location where their child was found and the details of the police officer who returned them. There will be a police contact number for parents if there are any concerns. This initiative will commence on 24 July 2012. We encourage parents to support schools and the police in reducing truancy and ensuring that children are safe.
