Important Reminder: Due Date Approaches for Quarter 2 (Q2) Attendance, Behavior, Bullying, and Truancy Data Review

The Department of Education offers quarterly windows for School Administrative Units (SAUs) to review, for accuracy and comprehensiveness, the data that has been entered and reported to us. It is our hope that review of this data on a more regular basis will save SAU personnel time and work at the end of the year, and that it will provide time for analysis and to make any necessary corrections.

The certification period for Quarter 2 (Q2), which includes attendance, behavior, bullying, and truancy opened January 1st.  Review and certification are required by January 15th. Superintendent certification is required for all quarterly reports.

  • Attendance data certification can be found here, and guidance on reporting attendance can be found here. Since Q2 attendance data for 2020-2021 will be used in analysis for comparison against 2019-2020 Q2 data to study effects from the pandemic, it is vital for this dataset to be accurate and complete.  Please validate carefully prior to certification.
  • Behavior data certification can be found here, and guidance on reporting behavior can be found here.
  • Bullying data certification can be found here and guidance on reporting bullying can be found here.
  • Truancy data certification can be found here, and guidance on reporting truancy can be found here.
