School Attendance Review Board - SARB
A serious attendance problem often begins with a few unexcused absences. Counselors, teachers, nurses, school police officers and a school attendance review team may be brought in to help students at the school site level. When the school has exhausted all resources and a student's attendance has not improved, then a family may be referred to a SARB hearing.
