    STEP POLICY The following STEPS are a series of progressive measures and interventions set by the KHSD to improve student attendance. Though each student will be held accountable for his/her actions and each parent held responsible for his/her student’s truancy, it is an overall goal of each school to increase daily attendance for the purpose of ensuring student achievement and success. The Truancy Prevention Program (TPP), formerly known as the Truancy Court Program (TCP), is an early intervention program. Its mission is to improve middle school attendance in Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) by discovering the root causes of truancy and assisting students and their families with issues that impact attendance.
