This year in San Antonio there will be an addition to the dress code at some high schools.
They'll include an ankle bracelet for students who have skipped school one too many times.

What's considered fun and games to some is a huge problem in Judge Linda Penn's Courtroom.
The judge is starting a six-month pilot program targeting kids who are excessively tardy.
These are kids affiliated with gangs, runaways and kids who have multiple court cases.

Skipping school is an age-old problem.
Linda Cyphers watches her grandchildren now, but years ago her daughter used to skip.
She hopes students will start taking responsibility and realize the law is the law.
