California law requires all children to attend school and bases the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)—the largest source of funding available to local educational agencies (LEAs)—primarily on average daily attendance (ADA). In addition to the LCFF, many more sources of K-12 education funding use the ADA in determining LEA entitlements, including, but not limited to, state special education and the Expanded Learning Opportunities Program. The list of funds based on ADA has grown significantly in recent years.
Instructional time is a key foundational element to LEAs generating ADA and ensuring ADA-based funding. There are myriad laws and regulations in place that govern both student attendance and instructional time. These laws have a rich history, provide the basis for determining and maintaining funding, and serve the dual purpose of valuing student attendance at school as well as ensuring equitable levels of instructional time throughout California.
Attendance accounting and instructional time laws have experienced numerous legislative changes over the past few years and tend to have requirements that are unique to LEA types and student settings. Failure to comply with these laws can result in the loss of funding. Lower attendance rates than pre-pandemic levels add additional pressure to LEAs to ensure that all attendance claimed meets these requirements to fully capture all ADA generated.
The purpose of this webinar is to provide attendees with the tools needed to meet the many attendance accounting and instructional time requirements on both programmatic and fiscal fronts. Recent changes in ADA and instructional time laws will be covered, as will the many requirements that must be met by LEAs to maintain compliance.
