by Sandoval, Victorina, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 65; 1527586
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to create a truancy prevention program for Latino students, find potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund the program in Santa Fe High School in Whittier Unified School District. The goal of the proposed program is to decrease truancy and increase attendance by using preventative and reduction strategies on 40 ninth grade Latino Students identified as having low attendance. Strategies used include: (a) attendance monitoring, (b) biweekly individual sessions and twice monthly group sessions, (c) individual and group incentives, and (d) motivational assemblies. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not required for the successful completion of this project. Implications for social work are discussed.
