ODESSA - A steep penalty for any parents who still haven't registered their kids for classes in Odessa.

Truancy hearings start Tuesday morning at nine at the Ector County I.S.D. Administration Building.

If any child or parent won't sign up, they could face a fine up to $500.00 dollars.

The Municipal Court has filed more than 600 truancy cases already this year.
