The pandemic brought to light truancy challenges in Mercer County, affecting families and a diverse set of professional agencies. Seeking an effective truancy solution, several community agencies formed a Truancy Task Force with the purpose of developing an inclusive, consistent, and effective truancy practice through purposeful community engagement and collaboration, consistent values practice, and adherence to agreed upon standards for accountability. Members of the task force represent Children and Youth, Juvenile Probation, District Justice Office, Office of Children, Youth, and Families, Mental Health, Behavioral Health, local school districts, and the University of Pittsburgh Child Welfare Resource Center.
