Daily Republic: Truancy Court program aims to keep Solano children in school

FAIRFIELD — A Superior Court judge, a pair of veteran deputy district attorneys and staff from local school districts and the Solano County Office of Education all convened Wednesday at the courthouse to try to help a handful of parents get their children to school.

With District Attorney Donald du Bain and Solano County Schools Superintendent Jay Speck watching, seven parents, some with their children alongside them, had quasi-criminal charges dismissed along with the specter of possibly having to pay $455 or more for violating state truancy laws.

Also in court were seven other parents who have learned the hard way that local officials are taking the problem of truancy very seriously.
