A new system to prevent truant students from being thrown out of school is moving forward. Statehouse reporter Andy Chow has more.
The House just passed a bill requiring schools to create intervention teams that would step in when a child is consistently absent.
That team will meet with the student and their parents to try to fix the situation to avoid going to court.
