School Attendance Review Board (SARB)
Throughout the county, district SARBs coordinate efforts to keep students in school and give them a meaningful educational experience. SCOE facilitates the Sonoma County SARB, a county-level body that develops policy and provides support and technical assistance to improve school attendance. Representatives from schools, law enforcement, probation, social services, parents, and youth-serving agencies serve as members of the county-level SARB. Meetings are held quarterly.
