INFORMATIONAL LETTER: 3
POLICY CODE: JHBB
TO: Superintendents of Schools
FROM: Susan A. Gendron, Commissioner
DATE: July 2, 2004
RE: UPDATE – Average Daily Attendance (ADA) Data Needed
Yesterday the Department issued Administrative Letter No. 1 (see link below) asking local districts to complete a form on average daily attendance, disaggregated by subgroup.
When apprised of the complexities and difficulties inherent in this task, we contacted the United States Department of Education and alerted them to the difficulties that Maine schools are facing to meet this requirement. U.S. DOE officials have agreed to review this situation and will be contacting us next week with additional guidance on this issue.
In the meantime we request that no further action be taken at this time on the request for average daily attendance data as outlined in Administrative Letter No. 1.
We appreciate all of your efforts and your patience as we work to resolve this issue.
