District Attendance Policy


The San Mateo Union High School District (District) is committed to the education of all its students and to each student achieving their potential in a supportive educational environment. A student’s attendance at school is a critical component for achieving this goal. It is the intent of the District that intensive guidance and coordinated community services are provided to meet the special needs of pupils with school attendance and/or school behavior problems. If early interventions have failed to produce needed changes in a student’s problem attendance or behavior, a referral to the District’s School Attendance Review Board (S.A.R.B.) may be a viable option to getting support services in place for both the student and family.
