Child Welfare and Attendance
Stephanie Johnson, Director

SART is a School Site Team that includes the parent, student, Principal, Parent Facilitator, and other school staff as needed. The goal of this team is to identify possible solutions to improving the students’ attendance and/or behavior. At this meeting, all parties will have an opportunity to share and discuss ways to support healthy student engagement and attendance. Everyone will have an assigned role/responsibility to help ensure improved attendance and/or behavior. All resources, support services, and action items will be documented, reviewed, and signed by everyone at the end of the SART meeting.
Students will be referred to the district’s School Attendance Review Board (SARB) if they do not attend their SART meeting or if the student’s attendance/behavior does not improve after the implementation of the SART attendance contract.
Education Code Section 48263 – If any minor in any district of a county is habitually truant, or has irregular in attendance at school, as defined in this article, or is habitually insubordinate or disorderly during attendance at school, the pupil may be referred to the School Attendance Review Board
