Referrals may be made to the GOALS Center by parents, schools, NDHHS, law enforcement or state / community agencies.
Students whose absences have not yet reached 20 days or those with more serious non-attendance issues (e.g., having reached the legal, 20-day threshold).
You will first need to register for an account on our system (look to the top right of this page). Once you have done so, email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know, we will get your account verified, which will give you access to the online referral system. Any questions? Contact the email@example.com.
Referrals to GOALS should be based on the NEEDS of the youth and or family, rather than a particular number of days absent.
Is there a history of absenteeism?
Has the youth and or family cooperated with school and district interventions?
Are there barriers to accessing the community resources?
Are there other factors that may be contributing to absenteeism?
Are you at a loss as to what to do next?
