How are students referred to TAP?
Services provided by Truancy Specialists:
In accordance to the Compulsory Attendance Law (click here for the link), TAP staff may file a petition with the State's Attorney when the student and/or parent fails to remediate truancy.
Credit Recovery is offered through Truants' Alternative Program and to students enrolled in one of the public schools within our three-county area of coverage. Students who have failed courses required for graduation, can be referred to TAP for Credit Recovery. Please contact your school's guidance counselor to discuss the option of Credit Recovery.
If you have any questions about the Truants' Alternative Program, please contact Brandy Howard at (815) 599-1408 ext. 134.
