The final quarter of attendance reporting for school year 2018-2019 is coming soon. Quarter 4 attendance (end of year attendance certification) will finalize data for federal reporting of Chronic Absenteeism data to EDFacts, and for the calculation and reporting of the ESSA non-academic indicator of Chronic Absenteeism. This information is required to be made available to the public on the ESSA dashboards for each school. It is important for each school and district to verify that the attendance data is accurate and complete, prior to submitting by June 30th. Once we pass into July, the school year will then roll over into the 2019-2020 school year. This will finalize all the information from the 2018-2019 school year, and no changes to the attendance or chronic absenteeism data for the 2018-2019 school year will be possible.
Open Date: June 1st, 2019
Due Date: June 30th, 2019
On June 5th, the Maine DOE Data Team will be holding a webinar for Quarter 4 attendance reporting. This would be beneficial for data compliance staff and district leaders. The purpose of this webinar is to provide the following:
- a refresher on how to complete the Quarter 4 Attendance reporting
- a brief overview of how this data is used for DOE reporting
- why the timeliness, accuracy, and completeness of this data matters to your district & community.
