For the second time this school year, the Rochester City School District is taking steps to make sure kids get back in the classroom.
Superintendent Bolgen Vargas joined staff members and community volunteers for their second truancy blitz.
Officials went to the homes of students who have been chronically absent from school trying to find out why these students are not in school and what can the district do to help.
Overall, when it comes to truancy, the District says one in four kids average more than 15 absences per school year.
Officials plan to visit about 100 homes each month through the end of the school year as part of its ongoing effort.
