AIM Tracks Truant Students with Hand-Held GPS Devices

Boy am I glad I’m done with school because if I went to Bryan High School I would probably be getting into a lot of trouble. Students who skip school will soon be tracked 24 hours a day, seven days a week with AIM aka Attendance Improvement Management Program. Those students who are already in the truancy court system will be the first to be tracked. Students on the program will be given a hand-held GPS device between the time they leave for school in the morning and then when they return for check in at nighttime. They will also receive additional coaching and motivation to get to school and stay there. So far the program seems to working – last spring students were maintaining a 97% attendance rate.
