The Child Welfare & Attendance office assists students, parent/guardians, and schools to promote student success and achievement. We believe supporting the needs of children involves understanding, sustaining and enhancing their support systems namely family, peers, school, and community. We aim to provide quality service with respect and integrity. The CWA Office manages Student transfers (Inter and Intra-district transfers, Open Enrollment, and School Choice), Attendance and Truancy intervention (SARB), Student Enrollment issues, support to special populations including Foster and McKinney-Vento Homeless youth, Alameda County Mental Health Services, and other areas concerning student welfare. As part of Student and Family Support Services, we share the mission to engage and support students, families, and schools in a comprehensive way which creates a community that develops successful thriving students.
