(a) The programs in this chapter are designed to provide a continuum of intervention and
services to support families and children in keeping children in school and combating truancy and
educational neglect. School districts, county attorneys, and law enforcement may establish the
programs and coordinate them with other community-based truancy services in order to provide
the necessary and most effective intervention for children and their families. This continuum of
intervention and services involves progressively intrusive intervention, beginning with strong
service-oriented efforts at the school and community level and involving the court's authority
only when necessary.
(b) Consistent with section 125A.091, subdivision 5, a parent's refusal to provide the parent's
child with sympathomimetic medications does not constitute educational neglect.
