Additional Official Enrollment Count Date

Monday, November 25, 2013, 10:56 am

SB 175 passed by the 2013 legislature added a third official enrollment count on the first Monday in December.  This count (winter count) is in addition to the official enrollment count dates on the first Mondays in October and February.  The official winter count day is Monday, December 2, 2013.  The data must be imported and submitted in MAEFAIRS by December 16, 2013.

The following resources are located on the OPI website:

Extenuating circumstances for students who will be gone 10 days prior to the count date, but which would support a variance should be submitted to the OPI prior to the official enrollment count date for consideration of inclusion of the student in the enrollment count for ANB purposes beyond the 10th day of absence.
