ABSTRACT
In June 2000, the Memphis City Schools implemented a "truancy assessment center" (TAC). A multi-agency data sharing project was initiated to evaluate the impact of the TAC. This paper examines process and impact indicators to assess onset, persistence, and desistance of truancy and its relationships with school performance and delinquency.
