Washoe officials to visit students

RENO (AP) - Schools officials and community leaders in Washoe County plan to visit children who haven't attended classes since school started three weeks ago.

The Door to Door for Student Achievement event on Saturday will include 12 teams visiting the addresses of 366 students who didn't return to school or submit transfer forms.

Data show 232 high school students, 20 middle school students and 114 elementary school students haven't shown up.

School Trustee Scott Kelley says visits are more effective than phone calls, letters or e-mails.

Superintendent Heath Morrison says the visits are part of a goal to increase on-time high school graduation rates.
