The Attendance Improvement Office (AIO) was formed by the Elk Grove Unified School District in 2015 with the desired intent to monitor and improve the attendance of all students within the district.
The AIO is involved in a pilot program that covers four high school regions and their feeder middle and elementary schools. The four high school regions are Elk Grove, Florin, Laguna Creek and Valley. All schools utilize a number of research-based interventions that are designed to improve attendance and offer support in identified areas that may be impacting attendance.
The interventions may include documented student and parent communication, Student Attendance Review Team (SART) meetings, Partners Against Chronic Truancy (PACT) meetings, home visits with law enforcement, and Truancy Court. AIO often includes the Student Support Centers, district nurses, Foster Youth Services, Drug and Alcohol Services. Teen Parenting Resources, and two community based counseling services to assist with a variety of needs that impact children and their attendance.
