South Bay Union School District What is ADA? Every Day Counts! • The state of California funds school districts based on student attendance, known as Average Daily Attendance (ADA). • Beginning July 1, 1998 school districts no longer receive funding from the state of California for students that are absent from school. This includes all absences. Every Day Counts! How is ADA computed? • ADA is calculated by dividing the total number of days of student attendance by the number of days of instruction • The period that is used to calculate ADA is from July 1st to April 15th Every Day Counts! Example: •Maria has perfect attendance 180 days attended ÷ 180 days instruction = 1.0 ADA •Johnny attended 171 days of the 180 days of instruction 171 days attended ÷ 180 days of instruction = .94 ADA Every Day Counts! How Does ADA Generate Revenue? • Revenue Limit: • Maria’s attendance generated $4,985 1.0 ADA X $4,985 revenue limit per ADA = $4,985 • Johnny’s attendance generated $4,690 .94 ADA X $4,985 revenue limit per ADA = $4,690 Every Day Counts! 1 Day August 28, 2009 • District Enrollment 7,715 • Actual Number of Students in Attendance 7,344 Every Day Counts! 1 Day *7,715 X $28.00 = $216,020 (*number of students enrolled on 8/28/09) *7,344 x 28.00 = $205,632 (*actual number of students in attendance on 8/28/09) Lost Revenue on 08/28/09: $-10,388 Every Day Counts! 1 Week August 24, 2009-August 28, 2009 •District Enrollment 39,061 • Actual Number of Students in Attendance 37,583 Every Day Counts! 1 Week *39,061 X $28.00 = $1,093,708 (*Total number of days of enrollment 8/24/09-8/28/09 ) *37,583 x $28.00= $1,052,324 (*Actual number of days of attendance 8/24/09-8/28/09) Lost Possible Revenue: $-41,384.00 Every Day Counts! 1 Day January 21, 2010 • Enrollment 7,757 Actual number of students in attendance 5,385 Number of students absent -2372 Every Day Counts! 1 Day January 21, 2010 *7,757 X $28.00 = $217,196 (*Number of students enrolled 01/21/10) *5,385 x $28.00 = $150,780 (*Actual number of students in attendance 01/21/10) Lost Possible Revenue: $-66,416.00 Every Day Counts! Every day a student misses school he gets more than two days behind his peers because he must make up missed learning and catch up with new learning at the same time. Every Day Counts!
