Welcome, Douglas County Partners!

SupportEd is a community-based truancy diversion program for K-8 students in Douglas County, KS. We aim to keep students and families out of court for truancy by using data-backed, behavioral solutions focused on rehabilitation. 

Truancy Criteria

Schools are legally responsible for securing supportive services when students meet truancy criteria. In Kansas, truancy is defined as follows:

At least ONE unexcused absence on:

  • three consecutive school days,

  • five school days in a semester, OR

  • seven school days in a school year.

An ABSENCE is defined as missing:

  • 1 + hours for elementary school, OR

  • 1+ class periods for middle and high school ​
