16 McGavock Students Charged in Truancy Sweep

More news of success regarding the efforts to reduce truancy. Below is the information provided by our Hermitage Flex Officers. As always, great work! Gratefully Vivian. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Hermitage Flex officers conducted a truancy sweep of McGavock High School today. Officers charged 16 McGavock students with loitering during school hours for attempting to leave the campus while school was in session. Three adults were charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. During the truancy initiative, an officer in one unmarked vehicle watched for students who appeared to be skipping school. Uniformed officers then made investigative stops of those who appeared to be in violation. The truancy operation is the latest in an on-going effort between the police department, Juvenile Court, and school officials to see that students are in school and remain there until dismissal.
