ATTENDANCE IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM (AIP)
WELCOME TO THE ATTENDANCE IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM'S WEBPAGE!Our goal is to support and encourage each student to come to school every day and on time. The Attendance Improvement Department consists of a Supervisor of Attendance, (4) School Community Workers and (1) Intervention Specialist who work directly with students and their families to increase daily attendance and encourage student engagement. School attendance is one of the most reliable predictors of student success.Interventions may include; Documented Student and Parent Communication, Habitual Truancy Conferences (HTC), Partners Against Chronic Truancy (PACT) meetings, Home Visits, Student Attendance Review Board Hearings (SARB) and Truancy Court. AIP often collaborates with Student Support Centers, District Nurses, Foster Youth Services, McKinney Vento Liaisons, Child Protective Services, Law Enforcement and many outside wrap around agencies that assist with a variety of needs that impact children and their attendance.SCHOOL ATTENDANCE REVIEW BOARD (SARB)In 1974, the Legislature enacted California Education Code (EC) Sections 48320 to enhance the enforcement of compulsory education laws and to divert students with school attendance or behavior problems from the juvenile justice system. Although the goal of a SARB is to keep students in school and provide them with meaningful educational experience, SARB boards do have the power, when necessary, to refer students and their parents or guardians to court. SARBs attempt to understand why students are experiencing attendance and/or behavior problems and seek to resolve those issues when existing school and community resources have been exhausted.MCKINNEY-VENTO "FAMILIES LIVING IN TRANSITION"Individuals who lack a fixed regular and adequate nighttime residence are considered to be living in transition. The program includes school-age children who have a nighttime residence, that is: shared with another family, a shelter, motel or hotel, transitional housing, trailer park, campground, makeshift arrangements in someone's home, or a place not designed for human accommodations.ContactAttendance Improvement Program(916) 979-8604McKinney-Vento Program(916) 979-8794Dominic CovelloDirectorStudent Support ServicesSupervisorAttendance Improvement Program/McKinney-Vento ProgramLori KehoeSecretaryAttendance Improvement Program
