Truancy

Effective September 1, 2015, the offense of Failure to Attend School is repealed along with the designation of truancy as Conduct Indicating a Need for Supervision. Following these changes, Chapter 65 of the Family Code is created, which identifies the procedures and rules for handling truant conduct as a civil procedure in a truancy court.

All offenses for Failure to Attent School prior to September 1, 2015, are to be expunged under section 45.0541 of the Code of Criminal Procedure. The court in which the individual was convicted or a complaint for a truancy offense was filed shall order the conviction, complaints, verdicts, sentences and other documents relating to the offense -- including any documents in the possession of a school district or law enforcement agency -- to be expunged from the individual's record.

Effective September 1, 2015, truancy court procedures and proceedings in cases involving allegations of truant conduct are provided in Chapter 65 of the Family Code. Other areas of law associated with truant conduct have seen amended or repealed: Code of Criminal Procedure, Family Code, Education Code, Government Code, Penal Code, and Texas Rules of Civil Procedure.

Forms marked with an asterisk (*) must be in triplicate (three identical copies), otherwise the court will make copies for you for which you will be charged.
