KAUKAUNA — The Kaukauna City Council is expected to consider amending its truancy ordinance to align with state law during its regular meeting Wednesday.

Currently, state law requires a student to attend school through the end of the term in which they turn 18.

The proposed amendment to the Kaukauna municipal code would add the same requirement.

“Any such student who has reached the age of 18 years of age shall continue to be a pupil as that term applies under this section through the end of the school term, quarter, semester or trimester of the school year in which the student attains the age of 18 years,” according to the amendment.

A violation could result in a court order to return to school and fines that could total up to $500, suspension of driving privileges, counseling and other penalties.

The council meeting will be on Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2017 due to the Tuesday primary election.

The council meets at 7 p.m. in the Municipal Services Building, 144 W. Second Street, Kaukauna.
