18A:38-34. Attendance officers in counties other than counties of first class; duties; terms; salaries
Whenever a majority of the boards of education of any county other than counties of the first class has by resolution requested the appointment of a county attendance officer or officers and, upon investigation, the commissioner and the state board shall deem the appointment of a county attendance officer or officers to be for the best interest of the schools of that county, the commissioner shall appoint, subject to the approval of the state board, a suitable person or persons to be known as the county attendance officer or officers for the county who shall perform in all districts of the county exclusive of city school districts such duties as may be prescribed by rules of the state board. Each county attendance officer shall have the same power to enforce the compulsory school law and rules connected therewith as is conferred upon attendance officers appointed by local boards of education. If any such person so appointed a county attendance officer is in possession of a proper visiting teacher's certificate, in full force and effect, such county attendance officer shall be designated "home and school counsellor," and such "home and school counsellor," in addition to the powers of a county attendance officer, shall have all the powers of a visiting teacher. The term of office of such county attendance officer shall be for one year and the commissioner shall fix the salary of such county attendance officer or officers with the approval of the state board.
