Chronic Absenteeism: Spotlight on Juvenile Justice Online (JJO)

Chronic Absenteeism

On March 22nd, community partners and schools came together to collaborate and working together on the implementation of a diversion program: Juvenile Justice online (JJO). The key to JJO is an approach which is based on educating and building relationships with youth/families when kids become or are on their way to becoming “truant”. 30 Participants from 5 communities came together to learn about JJO, cyber bullying, sexting and how to best guide our kids through the possible dangers on using internet connected devices. Participants in this training were Judges, Juvenile Departments, Police Officers, School Admin, Counselors and C.A.R.E.
