Jurupa Unified School District’s School Attendance Review Board (SARB) headed by Sandra Amatriain, CWA Coordinator, has been recognized as a Model SARB by the 2014-15 Model SARB Recognition Program sponsored by the California Department of Education (CDE) in cooperation with the Califor​nia Association of Supervisors of Child Welfare and Attendance (CASCWA).    The program identifies and recognizes results-based school attendance improvement programs at the district or county level that are outstanding and innovative programs that will serve as models for other SARBs in the state.  Applicants are evaluated in six content areas.  The recognition ceremony will take place on Friday, April 24, 2015, at the State Conference of the California Association of Supervisors or Child Welfare and Attendance (CASCWA).

The purpose of SARB is to help truant or recalcitrant students and their parents or guardians solve school attendance and behavior problems through the use of available school and community resources.  Key questions that are addressed by the SARB panel members are:  Why is the student absent?, What behaviors need to be addressed?, and, How can the school and/or community help the student and the student’s family? 

The Riverside County District Attorney’s office is an active partner in JUSD’s SARB meetings.  “Congratulations to the Jurupa Unified School District on its selection as a model SARB by the California Department of Education and the state SARB,” Riverside County District Attorney Michael Hestrin said. “This is a significant accomplishment and the district deserves recognition for achieving such a high standard and for serving as a leadership model for other school districts in Riverside County and throughout California. The DA’s Office is proud of our partnership with the district on this excellent project. To all who helped make this goal a reality, well done.”

There is a new social media app called Burn Book. It is the newest of the social media apps that offer anonymity and are popular with our youth. Burn Book has proven to be a huge distraction in our educational system nationwide and its use is causing serious problems in our schools. The app has a tremendous amount of followers throughout the world and has captured the attention of law enforcement and educators alike because it provides a forum of students posting anonymous threats.
