    Truancy Intervention Program

    TIP LogoThe Truancy Intervention Program (TIP) is designed to support Oshkosh area students who are experiencing problems with school attendance.  Students and their families will have an opportunity to avoid formalized court proceedings by voluntarily participating in TIP. 

    OBJECTIVES

    The Truancy Intervention Program (TIP) strives to accomplish three main objectives:

    •  Assist students in returning to school with regular attendance

    •  Parents/guardians
    •  School staff
    •  Winnebago County Human Services

    • Being a positive role model
    • Goal setting and achieving
    • Communicating  with social workers and school staff

    Mission Statement

    • Improved attendance
    • Improved behavior
    • Improved grades
