Description & Overview

MPAAA will host its 2018 Attendance and Truancy Workshop on Friday, March 23rd at Lansing Community College's West Campus in Lansing MI. The Workshop is intended for School, ISD and county court staff and officials with an interest in Attendance and Truancy programs and regulations. This one-day workshop will run from 9 AM to 3 PM.


Our Keynote speaker for 2018 is Special Agent Jeremy Ashcroft with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Special Agent Ashcroft will be speaking on Human trafficking case studies and warning signs in schools. 

In addition, we'll have breakout sessions during the day with speakers from school districts, cyber schools, and county court and DHHS regarding their programs and offering best practices tips to attendees.

The final session of the day will be Truancy 101 with Carolyn Claerhout, J.D., with Oakland Schools. Carolyn will review the current compulsory attendance laws and discuss the recent changes to federally-defined chronic absenteeism. Carolyn will also update attendees on recent and potential changes in truancy legislation.
