AimTruancy Solutions is the brainchild of founders Paul Pottinger, Ph.D., a psychologist, and Shelton Stogner, a veteran with more than 30 years’ experience in the field of juvenile justice and truancy enforcement. In 2005, the two developed an intensive supervision service incorporating GPS monitoring to keep at-risk youth in school. The service’s initial tests yielded extraordinary results.
In a short time, that program has evolved into the unique mentoring and monitoring solution that sets AimTruancy apart. We are headquartered in Dallas, Texas and serve school districts and communities nationwide.
