About the Student Attendance Review Board

San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) students are referred to the Student Attendance Review Board (SARB) by their current schools either because:

  • They have been identified as Habitual Truants pursuant to California Education Code, section 48262, or
  • They are irregular in attendance pursuant to California Education Code, section 48263

SARB works to address the needs of referred students so they can attend and be successful at school.

The Student, Family, and Community Support Department (SFCSD) sets up a unique SARB for each referred student, attempting to match organizations and services with each student’s specific needs. SARB meets with referred students, their parents or guardians, and school representatives to collaboratively identify solutions and appropriate resources for resolving the issues impacting the student’s attendance.

SARB panel members include community representatives from San Francisco Police Department, District Attorney’s Office, Child Protective Services, Community Behavioral Health Services (for example, Family Mosaic), Cal WORKS, and Community Based Organizations (for example, Sunset Youth Services). Additionally, SFUSD representatives from SFCSD (for example, CWAL, Attendance Liaisons, Early Retirement Incentive Program/ERIP teachers, LSPs, etc.) also serve on the SARB panel.
