School district, police to meet with students, parents about truancy

By From page A4 | June 20, 2013

FAIRFIELD — Truant students and their parents or guardians are invited to speak Thursday with representatives from the school district and the police.

They will meet at 5 p.m. in the Fairfield-Suisun School District’s office at 2490 Hilborn Road in Fairfield.

All those rounded up in a sweep in May were sent a letter inviting them to the talk, said Angie Avlonitis of the district’s Student Services Department. Included in that May 14 sweep of 43 students were two students in possession of marijuana, two in possession of alcohol and one with a no-bail warrant.

The Student Services Department is looking to meet with those students about why they were ditching school and to have a discussion with the guardians about how to influence their teen’s behavior. The Fairfield Police Department, in collaboration with the district, will continue to coordinate truancy sweeps during the 2013-14 school year.

    What a splendid well written comment! Will Fairfield School Superintendent Jackie Cottingham-Diaz now get a pay raise in recognition of your exceptional ability to speak and write the English language? Perhaps you are one of the esteemed proud parents of the "scholars'' in question. You must be so proud! Congratulations!
