Since its inception, TIP has served nearly 9,000 children. An impressive 5,288 children did not return to the Juvenile Court since their involvement with the project. This represents an overall 83.5% success rate.
Nationwide, as many as 10-15% of students (7.5 million) miss nearly a month of school every year. That’s 135 million days of lost time in the classroom (attendance works, 2013).
To provide further assistance to our children and families, TIP hosts outreach activities throughout the year including a holiday gift drive and an awards recognition program at the end each school year.
1,301 Atlanta attorneys have completed TIP training and have donated over 37,203 hours of their time to Truancy Intervention Project cases. The hours contributed by these volunteer attorneys represent a donation to Fulton County of $5,141,166 since inception.
