“Well done my good and faithful servant.”


CEO and Director, Bill Rumley  has been working for more than 29 years as an Attendance/Truant Officer helping students and their families.  In 1994 Bill ventured out on his own and started providing services to any and all school divisions that needed help with truants and that were serious about wanting to address the problem.

Today Bill and his team of five are in their 19th year of helping to keep kids in schools by providing a very specialized service to schools and their families. From a very humble beginning with the Norwood School Division (6 schools) they have grown  to provide services to 4 of the 5 largest school divisions  within the Province of Manitoba.  Combined, these 4 divisions have more than 160 schools and a student population of approximately 75,000.

Considered the "experts" in their field, their service is fast, efficient, and reliable. Their best endorsements come from the divisions that they continue to serve.  If you would like to know more about their service and how it can benefit your division please do not hesitate to contact them.  Remember.....
