Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a truancy prevention and reduction program, to locate and evaluate potential funding sources, and to write a grant to fund the program at Pacoima Charter School in Pacoima, California. The proposed program takes a two-pronged approach with attendance promotion interventions for the entire school population and additional services for low-attending students, with an emphasis on bridging the gap between the school and families. The program was developed based on a comprehensive review of the literature. Actual submission and/or funding ofthe grant were not required for the successful completion of this project. Implications for social work practice are addressed.
