Education Laws and Regulations
603 CMR 13.00:
Certification of Supervisors of Attendance
All persons qualified for appointment as supervisors of attendance by Civil Service examinations and experience prior to the effective date of 603 CMR 13.00 shall remain eligible for appointment as supervisors of attendance until the expiration of their Civil Service eligibility.
No supervisor of attendance appointed prior to September 1, 1972 shall be adversely affected by 603 CMR 13.00.
A school committee may upon its request be exempted from these requirements by the Department for any one school year when compliance therewith would in the opinion of the Department constitute a great hardship in the securing of supervisors of attendance for the community.
13.01: Phase III Requirements
A candidate for certification as a supervisor of attendance shall submit to the Board of Education:
(1) An application for such certification with evidence of good health and moral character.
(2) Evidence of two years satisfactory full-time, paid experience as a professional public or private; school teacher, or guidance counselor; health, welfare or social worker; as an aide to a supervisor of attendance; or as a parole, probation or law enforcement official whose major responsibilities during these two years have been working with juveniles and/or in home investigations.
(3) Evidence of knowledge of the laws concerning school attendance and of services available to children with attendance problems. The Director of Civil Service will make this determination in the case of Civil Service communities.
