Frequently Asked Questions

Referrals are most often made by school staff, caregivers and community agencies. 

Students who are at risk of becoming chronically absent should be referred to GOALS as soon as an attendance concern is identified.  Most often this means students with
fewer than 20 days missed.  Students who have been referred to the County Attorney or who are involved in the child welfare or juvenile justice system should not be 
referred to GOALS.
