COVID-19 Racial Injustice
Willmar, MN — PACT for Families Collaborative will engage truant youth, their parents, education staff and service providers to redesign services and test strategies for positive, sustainable solutions to truancy.
Focusing on youth and parent input as well as the focus group information led to a deeper understanding of complex issues and increased communication which had been more crisis-related prior to these structured conversations.
As we shared data from each of the perspectives with the community professionals, it generated very good discussion that led to new insights for some, and reinforced the complexity of the issue for others.
