This document summarizes requirements for the collection and governance of attendance data submitted by local education agencies (LEAs) in the District of Columbia to OSSE. It supersedes previous guidance issued by OSSE, via the Deputy Mayor for Education (DME), on Aug. 23, 2016.
The goals of this update are to:
- Increase transparency about attendance data and its collection, use and governance by OSSE.
- Describe the allowable uses of attendance data, including research, analysis, and evaluation as well as state-level and school-level reporting, while also protecting student privacy.
