School districts use a variety of approaches to reduce truancy. The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) provides assistance to local district truancy reduction efforts, including School Attendance Review Boards (SARB), and assists districts with referrals to Truancy Court.
SCOE facilitates a quarterly countywide attendance improvement/SARB meeting that includes members from all of the school districts in Sacramento County. This group acts on numerous issues relating to truancy reduction and the SARB process. Other members to this group include representatives from the Department of Human Assistance, Child Protective Services, Probation, Public Defender's Office, and the District Attorney's Office.
