February 22, 2012 – Bryan, TX – Judge Tommy Munoz is passionate about getting students on the right track to graduate and be productive citizens of his community. Two years ago he partnered with AimTruancy Solutions to help combat the number of truancy cases in Brazos County and Bryan ISD.
“I think it’s been a huge success.”Munoz told local news station ABC40, “We’ve had a lot of students written letters and parents sending thank you notes.”
“The truancy program not only serves as a tracking device, but more of a mentoring system.” Munoz continued, “They have coaches, mentors that talk to the students.”
Aim’s dropout prevention and truancy reduction program currently serves hundreds of high schools across Texas and the United States.
“We listen to what’s going on in their life and we start leading them to what is ultimately much more decisions, much better quality of life,” AimTruancy CEO Travis Knox told ABC40, “but it all starts with education and education starts with getting to school on time.”
