Three Judicial districts in Colorado are receiving grant money to implement truancy programs.

The $70,000.00 grants are part of an effort to help school districts reduce truancy and keep students from facing consequences in court.

The grants will fund projects in Judicial district one, which covers Gilpin and Jefferson counties; district 16, which covers Bent, Crowley and Otero counties; and district 18, which covers Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln counties.

The money is meant to help those districts come up with a plan to give students and their families personalized support.

Pueblo and Durango have received grants in the past for similar projects. Those focused on preventing students from becoming involved in the court system.

This round of grants will fund programs to help students who are already in the system.
