The purpose of this project was to design a 1-year pilot program to reduce truancy at Stevenson Middle School in East Los Angeles, California. Identifying potential funding sources and writing a grant to fund the programs is part of this project. The proposed program uses a systems theory approach by involving truant youth, parents and teachers as the target population. The program offers parents and teachers workshops, as well as, students peer support groups. Attendance incentives are offered at the completion of the program. The actual submission and/or funding of the grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
