The STARS initiative is a collaborative, comprehensive, and preventive effort to improve the growth of students educationally, emotionally and socially. STARS has been active in the Adams County area since 2009, and growing to many other counties in the years since.
The program collaborated with a variety of stakeholders in the community to implement and deliver a comprehensive program that addresses truancy and excessive absences within the public school system. This program is designed to move away from a traditional approach in dealing with excessive absences to a problem-solving program. Through a thorough examination of community resources, risk and protective factors, and current research, a number of goals, objectives and outcomes were determined to improve the attendance, graduation rates and deter further juvenile delinquency of our local youth.
