Child Welfare & Attendance Department
John Christiansen, Coordinator

The office of the Coordinator for Child Welfare and Attendance provides services for the District, parents and students through a number of ways. While our most important role for the District is to manage the attendance systems for the schools, we are responsible for many areas where we interact with parents and students. Some of these areas include:

* Inter & Intra District Attendance
* K-6 Enrollment
* Discipline Procedures
* Truancy / SARB / Expulsion Procedures
* 504 Plans
* Civil Rights
* Prevention
* Homeless/Foster Youth
* Home and Hospital Services
* Alternative Education Committee

Our office includes the administrative coordinator, administrative secretary and office clerks. We also have an administrative assistant who works with the schools, students and parents directly to encourage attendance.
