    I dont know what the child faces but the parents face a misdemeanor for the childís truancy.

    380.1599. Offenses and penalties
    A parent or other person in parental relation who fails to comply with this part is guilty of a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of not less than $5.00 nor more than $50.00, or imprisonment for not less than 2 nor more than 90 days
    Iíve found nothing that prescribes a penalty for the child.

    and not long ago a mother was actually sentenced to a couple months for failing to send her 12 year old child to school

    If you are stating that your daughter is going to juvenile court over her truancy, read this article.
