Montgomery County State's Attorney's Office Truancy Prevention Program
50 Maryland Avenue
Community Outreach Unit, 4th floor
The State's Attorney's Office serves the public interest through fair and honest administration of justice by exercising responsibilities to: prosecute criminal violations in Montgomery County; educate the public on criminal-justice issues; train lawyers for future service; address inequality and promote fairness in the criminal justice system; ensure access to the criminal justice system; promote professional relations with judges and attorneys; and further the efficient use of criminal-justice resources.
The State's Attorney's Office Truancy Prevention Program is a voluntary, early intervention program designed to keep children in school and families out of court. It confronts school absenteeism by addressing academic, school, personal and family-related factors. This program is a ten week program operated in conjunction with Montgomery County Public Schools and a network of volunteers. We meet with children to discuss their attendance, their challenges, and their goals.
