When a student is absent 5 full days ( 3 tardies = 1 full day) from school without a valid excuse, the student may be referred to a SART meeting held at their school site. SART meetings are a team effort ( parent included) to discover the source of the student's attendance issues, provide resources for the family, and build personal responsibility for the student to attend school. During the meeting, the students and parent (s) will be put on an attendance contract with the school.
