Welcome to Regional Office of Education #40
Jersey County Truancy Review Board
The Jersey County Truancy Review Board met on Wednesday, December 4th in the Jersey County Courthouse. Due to statewide increases in both chronic truancy and chronic absenteeism the TRB was formed by Regional Office of Education #40. The purpose of the Truancy Review Board is to help promote regular attendance and decrease the likelihood of school dropout and juvenile delinquency. The Truancy Review Board meets with students and families that have been identified as chronic truants. The board is responsible for trying to find the root cause of truancy and offering solutions when and where available. The Truancy Review Board meets with and reports student progress to the Jersey County State’s Attorney’s Office. The Jersey County Truancy Review Board is one of three active Truancy Review Boards in ROE #40. The Regional Office of Education also has active Truancy Review Boards in Greene and Macoupin Counties.
