Officials to Continue Anti-Truancy Program

October 17, 2003|From Times Staff Reports

Los Angeles City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo announced Thursday that his office would continue an anti-truancy, anti-gang program aimed at middle school students.

Operation Bright Future teaches parents about their legal responsibility to send their children to school and warns that parents whose children are excessively absent could face misdemeanor charges.

The attendance rate for students enrolled in the program increased by 3.4% last year, officials said.
