CAMDEN — Sixty-six high school students, who range from incoming high school freshmen to seniors, in Camden, NJ will each receive $100 if they attend school through Sept. 30, according to a report on Philly.com.

This program is Camden’s newest attempt at combating truancy – I Can End Truancy, or ICE-T – will focus on conflict-resolution and anger-management workshops and educational reinforcement during the next five weeks, ending Sept. 30. The students will attend anti-truancy sessions three days per week.

The program is being funded mostly through a $63,000 Community Justice Grant from the state Department of Criminal Justice. A city employee who was laid off in March will be paid a weekly stipend out of the grant money to administer the program.
