2013 CSAC Challenge Award to the San Bernardino County Public Defender’s Office
Making Attendance a Priority (MAP) is a collaborative, grant-funded program designed by the Public Defender’s Office to reduce truancy in the City of San Bernardino. MAP assigns a social services practitioner to visit families of truant students in their homes on a weekly basis to address issues leading to the child’s truancy. From 2008-13, MAP has served more than 1,800 children. In a recent sampling of 43 students, 32 of them attended 70 percent more classes than before they were identified by the school district for the program. MAP has also increased revenue to the San Bernardino City Unified School District at an average of $21,000 per year because of the increase in attendance.
