Officials take proactive approach to habitual truants

But, we still do have a problem," said Thomas Bozewicz, executive director of Nova Services.
...
Determining the root cause of habitual truancy is the goal of Nova Services employees, said Bozewicz.
...
It's very hard to simply point a finger and say if we could solve that problem, we could solve truancy in school," Bozewicz said.
"We had one youngster who was doing very well, and suddenly stopped participating and no one could figure out why.After investigating, we learned that a close relative was very ill and he wanted to stay home and take care of her.When he was assured she would be taken care of, he was fine, and back in school," Bozewicz said.
Another case involved a student who was involved in a serious incident at school and was very reluctant to go back, because of how she would be seen by classmates.In that case, Nova worked with her parents in finding outside counseling services so she could overcome her sense of dread about returning to school.
However, Bozewicz said he has seen some cases where the problem comes from the family, not the student.
"We had a number of referrals for students in kindergarten.Is this a student problem, or a parent problem?In those cases, we had to work with parents on those issues.It's not always a student problem," he said.
Once students are referred to Nova Services, the majority of them do succeed in resuming a regular attendance pattern, according to Bozewicz.
"Our goal is within eight weeks to get the student at either a 90 percent attendance or a 20 percent increase in attendance, and 80 percent of our cases are successful" he said, adding that it doesn't mean the others are not successful, it might just take longer.

Restorative justice programs puts a face on crime victims
www.gmtoday.com, 5 Dec 2006 [cached]
Juvenile crime in the county in the past few years has doubled, and juvenile detentions went from 230 to 489 from 2000 to 2003, said Thomas Bozewicz, executive director of Nova.The trend is younger youth are going through the system as well, 12 to 15 years old and some even younger than 10.
"It's pretty clear that we had some issues here we wanted to address," Bozewicz said.
One element of restorative justice is Project Payback, a court-ordered program in which Nova works with youth to find a job, and make sure restitution is paid and community service is completed.
So far, the program seems to be working.Of about 130 Project Payback cases in the first year, one re-offense occurred, Bozewicz said.
In 18 months, about 200 juveniles paid back $50,000, completed 2,000-plus hours of community service and helped pay municipal fines of $5,000, he said.
While Nova only takes partial credit for that success, this is a move in the right direction.
"It's troubled kids doing good deeds," Bozewicz said.
...
Bozewicz and Pohl want the conservative, law-and-order community of Washington County to know restorative justice and its programs do not provide an easy way out for offenders.
...
"This is really an add-on ... a way to assist the whole community on how to address this issue," Bozewicz said.
...
"We're really trying to involve much of the community in a community effort," Bozewicz said."Juvenile justice isn't something for the police department and courts ... it's really community justice."
Another element is Collective Mentoring Circles, started in January, which involves community elders.They review the offense, the impact on the youth, how to bring the person back into the community fold and how to involve other people to help, Bozewicz said.They'd like to involve victims in the program as well.
Bozewicz said Nova received a huge response when asking the parents of the youth offenders what impact the crime made on their families.Teaching parents good supervision and discipline makes an impact, he said.Our Savior's Lutheran Church and the Family Center of Washington County are addressing that with programs called Smart Discipline.
The goal, Bozewicz said, is by the time the grant runs out in another year and a half, more funding will be available by another source.
