Washington's Truancy Laws in the Juvenile Courts: Wide Variation in Implementation and Costs

Open Publication PDF

Marna Miller, Tali Klima, Corey Nunlist - October 2009

The 2008 Washington State Legislature directed the Institute to investigate the ways schools and courts are implementing the truancy provisions of the Becca Bill. In this report, we describe the various ways the courts have chosen to process truancy cases. We estimate the costs of these interventions to courts and local governments were $15.4 million for the 2007–09 biennium; the average cost per case statewide is $475 (in 2007 dollars).
