EL PASO- The school district has improved attendance rates over the past three years, but says there is always room for improvement.
Director of Pupil Services Mark Mendoza spoke with us this morning and described what his office is doing to make sure kids show up to school.
We also spoke with District Attorney Jaime Esparza, who prosecutes those who don't show up to school.
See what both men had to say about goals for the new school year and how they aim to better their services to the public.
