October 10th, 2011 - AimTruancy Solutions is in the Greater Chicago area this week for the annual National Dropout Prevention Conference, where truancy experts and educational leaders from across the country gather to share the latest research and approaches to dropout and truancy prevention.
“Keeping students in school though high school graduation is critical to their future success and to the success of our country,” said Illinois Governor Pat Quinn when welcoming the participants to the 2011 Dropout Prevention conference.
AimTruancy Solutions will be on hand to answer questions about the approach that continues to help districts across the United States increase school attendance and achievement.
“When truants become graduates, they break the dropout-to-prison cycle,” says Travis Knox, president of AimTruancy Solutions. “Truancy is the first step to dropping out, and dropping out often leads to joblessness, welfare, crime, and prison – the costs to society are staggering.”
