Attorneys are needed to represent students in the Connecting Attendance to Results in Education (CARE), a community-based truancy intervention program created by Metro Nashville Public Schools, the Metro Student Attendance Center and Advocates for Women’s and Kids’ Equality (AWAKE). A training session, which is required in order to represent a student, will be held at Waller, 511 Union Street in Nashville, on May 2 from 8 – 9:30 a.m. The program will train attorneys about truancy laws, the truancy adjudication process, the structure of the CARE program and the boundaries of the attorney-client (student) relationship.
