(105 ILCS 5/13B-70)
    Sec. 13B-70. Truancy and attendance problems. If a student is a chronic or habitual truant as defined in Section 26-2a of this Code or if a child has been ordered to attend school, the school district may consider the student for placement in an alternative learning opportunities program specifically designed to prevent truancy, supplement instruction for students with attendance problems, intervene to decrease chronic truancy, and provide alternatives to high school completion. A program operating pursuant to the truants' alternative and optional education program may contract with a school district or consortium to provide these services.
