Abstract

This is a study of truancy, related to the contributing factors of the child, home, school, and the community. The Troup County School System Truancy Protocol was identified as an effective instrument in examining the relationship of the variables to truancy. The study utilized data which was collected from case records and three questionnaires, student characteristics, staff satisfaction survey and truancy protocol. Analysis of data was conducted using frequencies and percentages. The findings indicate that parents must be involved in school programs in order to reduce or prevent truancy.
