"There is a time and a place for the court system when it comes to truancy issues, but the first and even second line of intervention should lie with the teachers and educators that deal with these students on a daily basis," said Mark Mendoza, El Paso Independent School District director of the Alpha Initiative, Student Outreach.
"In EPISD, we have taken the lead in using school resources to intervene against truancies and it has paid off tremendously in what we are certain will be better-than-expected attendance numbers," he said.

Mark Mendoza, the director of the ALPHA initiative for the El Paso Independent School District who was also sued by Laura and Michael McIntyre, said the ruling does not mean the school district will interfere with a parent's right to educate children.
"The most important thing is the fact that this really clarifies the role that the school district plays when it is suspected that home school may not be happening," Mendoza said. Mendoza became involved when the children's grandparents - Gene and Shirene McIntyre - met with him in November 2006 because they did not feel their grandchildren were not being educated, the ruling said. Additional questions were raised after Mendoza confirmed that Tori, the eldest of the McIntyre children, ran away from home at 17, "so she could attend school," the ruling said. Mendoza said that Tori was unable to provide any information regarding the level of her education or the curriculum of her home school education, the ruling said. In December of 2006, Mendoza and other officials from the school district visited the home of the McIntyre's who refused to "sign the form or provide any other information regarding their home school curriculum," according to the ruling. A letter from the Home School Legal Defense Association claimed that the McIntyre's were "in full compliance," but the letter did not reflect that the attorney was licensed in Texas, or did it indicate the lawyer had personal knowledge of the educational studies occurring at the McIntyre home. Additional truancy warnings, requests for conferences and notices were then provided to the McIntyre home, but they did not cooperate, the ruling said. In July 2007, Laura and Michael McIntyre filed a lawsuit against EPISD, former superintendent Lorenzo García, and Mendoza. The cases against García and Mendoza were dropped.

A courtroom is, in effect, the only enforcement mechanism the district has, said Mark Mendoza, the EPISD's director of pupil services and Alpha Intiative supervisor.
"We can suggest you go to counseling, we can suggest you go to an outside agency but we can't enforce that," he said. But Mendoza and the student-outreach specialists always push for students to complete a traditional high school degree if possible. "I don't want you guys to look at the GED as an easy way out," Mendoza told the students. He and Chappell agreed to another meeting at the beginning of the spring semester with the two students and their mother to check on their progress. They also get a reminder from Chappell -- she's included the sisters in a list of students whose attendance she charts every morning after the school day begins.
