TABS’ Role in Addressing Truancy in our Community

  • The TABS Program was designed to enforce the compulsory school attendance laws in the City of Milwaukee. Through the program’s efforts, truant youth are:

  • Identified & removed youth off of the streets during school hours.

  • Assessed for a school assignment and pattern of attendance.

  • Assisted in identifying barriers to consistent attendance.

  • Monitored to ensure re-entry and improved attendance.

  • Assisted in locating professionals who can support the family in making the necessary changes.


Program Goals

  • Goal one: To enforce the compulsory school attendance laws by intervening with youth who are truant.
