Home and School Visitor Services
Home & School Visitors help enforce the state of Pennsylvania School Attendance Code by visiting the homes of students who have accumulated unlawful absences. Their responsibilities include: working closely with attendance secretaries to determine their daily schedule for making home visits, meet with student’s, and parents in school and in their homes to discuss truancy issues, transport students to school when necessary, work with tardy students, and make Student Assistant Program (SAP) referrals. Their responsibility also includes attending truancy hearings at the court of Magisterial Justice’s throughout the district. Home & School Visitors also work collaboratively with district personnel to service the needs of students.
