October and November - ADA Months
Good school attendance is paramount to student achievement. During the months of October and November, good school attendance also impacts our district’s funding. The state uses attendance data from the months of October and November to calculate our average daily attendance (ADA). The funding for our school district is then based on that ADA, not our enrollment. We would like to encourage parents to follow the 63% rule to help increase ADA and funding. For a student to be counted present, he/she must be in school for at least 63% of the instructional day. Please keep those requirements in mind when making appointments and checking students out of school. We appreciate your cooperation!
