If a court finds a student has been truant, the court can order the student to:
- Attend school regularly
- Switch schools (if there is space, and an appropriate program is available);
- Get testing to determine if the student has used alcohol or drugs, and if so, then follow recommendations of the assessment;
- Get a mental health evaluation
