Collecting Attendance for the 2020-21 School Year

This document contains guidance for LEAs on how to define attendance during the 2020-21 school year, a year in which it is anticipated compulsory education will take place both in-person and via distance learning. This policy provides background on the context in which attendance policy is administered. The policy also outlines the intent of OSSE to collect daily student attendance for both in-person and distance learning, and provides the framework through which this will happen.

Note that the technical guidance is provided separately, in the 2020-21 School Year Data Connectivity Start of School Guidance.
