Santa Fe Public Schools has one of the highest truancy rates in the state, but district officials have a new plan to turn it around.

For example, parents get notified if their child skips school three times. If that student continues to skip, he or she won't be allowed to participate in extracurricular activities, including sports.

If it keeps up students would be referred to truancy court.

The district also wants to find a way to stop students from riding city buses during the day.
