Wilder announced an new anti-truancy initiative today from the main entrance of Martin Luther King Jr Middle School.

To combat truancy, Mayor Wilder announced a plan that puts more personnel in target neighborhoods, along with a truancy hotline to report truant students. The city is setting up truancy centers in Mosby, Hillside and Highland Park in an attempt to reduce high truancy rates. The city now has 8 truancy officers, and will soon hire at least a dozen more.

The truancy hotline number is 646-abcd and will be in effect starting next week.
