TASC Program

TASC (Truancy Assessment and Service Center)

TASC is an early intervention program that addresses habitual unexcused absences from school, or truancy, in Kindergarten through Fifth grade in order to increase attendance and prevent juvenile delinquency.


There are several advantages to participating in TASC. Children and families have the opportunity to access services that are targeted to properly address the underlying causes of what research has shown to be the primary indicator of juvenile delinquency: TRUANCY. TASC acts as a referral network linking families to valuable resources within the community that address areas of risks within the family. Finally, TASC gives children and families the opportunity to informally and voluntarily resolve legal misconduct without formal Court involvement.
