All children between the ages of 6-18 years of age are required to attend school and parents/guardians have a legal responsibility to ensure their child’s daily attendance. California Education Code states when a child refuses to attend school regularly, it can result in a referral to the School Attendance Review Board (SARB). Franklin-McKinley School District has implemented a School Attendance Review Board process to address chronic attendance and truancy problems.
Students may be referred to SARB when the school site has exhausted all resources and attendance has not improved. The Child, Welfare, and Attendance Office will schedule a SARB hearing in which the parent/guardian and child are required to attend. The SARB hearing panel consists of:
Child, Welfare, and Attendance Coordinator
School Linked Services Specialist
