Child Welfare and Attendance Programs
The Child Welfare and Attendance program affords every child the opportunity to attend school regularly. It also collaborates with the school and the community in a concerted effort to identify and eliminate, alleviate or ameliorate undesirable conditions that have an adverse effect upon the child’s adjustment to his educational environment.
Child Welfare and Attendance is a specialized student support service that covers compliance with compulsory education laws, student admission and enrollment procedures, student discipline procedures, transfers to alternative programs, and school climate and safety. Child Welfare and Attendance combines the knowledge and skill of counseling with knowledge of education and the law to resolve complicated situations involving student discipline, campus safety, and programs for high-risk youth.
The goal of the Child Welfare and Attendance Program is to ensure that all students have equal opportunity to succeed.
