The parents were ordered to serve fifty days in jail for contributing to the delinquency of their 13-year old daughter.
They claim their daughter was teased at school and won't go back.
The school district reached out by offering parent conferences, home visits, even medical and mental health assistance.
Officials say the parents have both a moral and legal obligation to educate their daughter.
The girl's father is currently serving jail time while the mother will begin serving when he is released in mid-march.
