The Wright County Attorney's Office is statutorily responsible for enforcing the laws and polices of the State, and enforcement of compulsory attendance laws is an important component of that responsibility.  The County Attorney's Office files with the Courts Truancy Petitions to ensure school attendance laws are enforced and educational needs of students are met. In these instances, the attorneys have the responsibility for advancing the public interest in the welfare of the child.
