lashawnfordChicago, IL – As the new school year approaches, there is a push to get students to meet their teachers on the first day of school.

State Representative La Shawn K. Ford (D-Chicago) urges the Chicago Police Department (CPD) to work with the Chicago Public Schools (CPS)  and announce the enforcement of the truancy law for the first day of school.

“It is always important to enforce the truancy law on each school day, but leading up to August 8th, the first day of school, this is an ideal opportunity to remind parents and students of the law. I urge the CPD to join the CPS and other organizations as they campaign to encourage families to get their children to school on the first day of attendance,” said Rep. Ford.

“Chicago police can also work to help provide safe passages in neighborhoods for a great start of a new school year,” Rep. Ford added.

For additional information, contact Rep. Ford’s constituent service office at 773-378-5902, or visit www.lashawnford.com.
