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.
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
