School Attendance Review Board (SARB)

Regular attendance is vital for successful learning. According to state law, students are considered truant when they have 3 or more unexcused absences and/or 3 tardies of 30 minutes or more without a valid excuse. A letter will be sent to parents of students who are considered truant. In addition, a copy of the letter will be filed in the student's CUM. Students who are habitually truant may be referred to SARB.
