Combating Truancy in EPISD
EL PASO- With most area kids back in school this week, the annual struggle against truancy begins for school districts.

NewsChannel 9 will talk to both the school district and District Attorney Jaime Esparza today about the issue. See those interviews tonight at 5, 6, and 10.
