Montague Area Public Schools will strictly follow the guidelines for truancy set by our Muskegon Area Intermediate School District and Operation Graduation. Operation Graduation is a collaboration with the Muskegon County Prosecutor's office, Department of Human Services, Mediation & Restorative Services and district Family Resource Centers.
A consistent countywide focus is necessary because:
Students who have good attendance, generally achieve higher grades, enjoy school more and are most employable after leaving high school.
Students who miss too much school often struggle throughout their academic career and may be less likely to graduate.
This collaborative effort focuses on early intervention and individual family needs. It gives the opportunity for all students to succeed. Being in school, every day, is critically important.
