A 35-year-old Clovis woman is the 17th parent to be convicted under the District Attorney’s Abolish Chronic Truancy program.

The woman pleaded guilty Thursday to failing to enforce school attendance, court records show.

According to a press release from the district attorney’s office, the woman’s daughter missed 31 out of 49 days of school at Clovis High School this year.

A student with more than 10 absences is considered a habitual truant, the release said.
