Contra Costa County Coordinating Council

Contra Costa County has a long history of active coordination between local school districts and the County Office of Education. This coordination is especially established when involved with services for expelled students. The County Office of Education Directors meet every other month with local district representatives to discuss issues of common concern, usually focusing on the most difficult to serve students.

The CCC Coordinating Council is also a forum for communication and information sharing among school district administrators, County Office of Education administrators, and key personnel from the Probation Department, District Attorney's Office, Child and Family Services, Juvenile Courts, and other county agencies who work with students on attendance and behavior related issues. In addition to its bimonthly meetings, the Council convenes additional meetings focused on particular topics, as needed.

Some key activities addressed by the CCC Coordinating Council are noted below:

  • Share best practices and concerns related to SARB (School Attendance and Review Board) processes
  • Review new legislation and discuss implementation strategies
  • Review changes in district board policies and procedures
  • Discuss agency and district needs
  • Identify strategies and/or program to improve student attendance and promote student success
  • Improve district and county wide coordination efforts to improve student attendance and promote student success

CA State School Attendance Review Board (State SARB)

The California State School Attendance Review Board (State SARB) was established (CA EC Section 48325, Statutes of 1987) to propose effective state strategies to improve school attendance and reduce the number of dropouts in the state. The legislative intent for the State SARB recognizes the importance of statewide dropout policy coordination, and the State SARB assists the State Superintendent of Public Instruction (SSPI) in disseminating effective practices to improve school attendance through the state (EC Section 48341).
