  • Students are more likely to succeed in academics when they attend school consistently. Research has shown that a student’s attendance record may be the biggest factor influencing academic success. By attending class regularly, students are more likely to keep up with daily lessons and assignments and take quizzes and tests on time.


  • Schools are responsible to developing a mechanism to collect and report daily attendance regardless of the instructional setting.

    At the elementary level, the classroom teacher is responsible for taking attendance each day.

    At the secondary level, daily student attendance will be taken, whether remotely or in-person, during a dedicated homeroom period.

    School districts report certain enrollment, attendance and school calendar information through the State Aid Management System. The data provided should be consistent with all other attendance reporting and requirements.

    An allegation of educational neglect may be warranted when a custodial parent or guardian fails to ensure a child’s prompt and regular attendance in school or keeps the child out of school for impermissible reasons resulting in an adverse effect on the child’s educational progress.
