(1) strongly encourage a parent or guardian of the pupil to attend school with the pupil for one day;
(2) assign the pupil to attend school on Saturday as supervised by the principal or the principal's designee; and
(3) petition the juvenile court that the student is in need of services under chapter 260C.
