Community Engagement Board

What is the Community Engagement Board?

  • It's a group of community members that meet with students and families to identify barriers to attendance and recommend resources and services for improving attendance.
  • The board acts as a bridge between student success and the community.
  • It provide a supportive space for students with ongoing truancy issues to openly discuss and identify the reasons behind their truancy.
  • The board works in partnership with local community partners, volunteers, district staff and the local juvenile court to intervene with students’ ongoing attendance barriers
  • Boards are highlighted as a key intervention in the truancy process.  According to our State Legislature, the Community Engagement Board is a preferred means of intervention.
The Community Engagement Board are held at the school district administration office.  They typically occur twice a month between the hours of 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.  The CEB are held both virtually and in-person.

The purpose of the Community Engagement Board is to provide an opportunity for the student and parent/guardian to meet with concerned community members and to be introduced to new ideas and resources with the purpose of improving student school engagement.
