    #Attend2Achieve Truancy Diversion Program (TDP)

    The #Attend2Achieve Truancy Diversion Program (TDP) is an information-based intervention program offered to parents and students as a preventative measure to educate parents/guardians and students who are experiencing truancy problems about the consequences associated with unexcused absences. In addition, the program identifies available and appropriate resources for families who are experiencing issues that may be contributing to a student’s truancy. The TDP is offered to students and parents with truancy issues once during each school year.  Upon completion of the#Attend2Achieve TDP, a Commitment Agreement will be presented for signature as acknowledgment of attending the class, as well as their improved attendance moving forward. We understand that there are a variety of factors that could contribute to a student's unexcused absences, and this Commitment Agreement is intended to help customize the truancy prevention measures for your student. 

    The TDP is offered on most Wednesdays at Wheeler Field House, located at Mercer Stadium. Wheeler Fieldhouse: 16403 Lexington Blvd. Sugar Land, Texas 77479. Please note, if you are taking the course online, you do not need to come to the face-to-face course at Wheeler. Completion of the online course and submition of your Commitment Agreement satisfies your requested presence in our program
