  1. An LEA may collect and submit attendance data based on sampling during the prior fiscal year. The sampling must include attendance data for all children for at least 30 school days. The data must be collected during at least three periods that are evenly distributed throughout the school year. Each collection period must consist of at least five consecutive school days. The Secretary uses these data to calculate the ADA of the LEA's federally connected children by:

    1. Determining the ADA of all children in the sample.

    2. Dividing the figure obtained in step a) by the LEA's total membership for the prior fiscal year.

    3. Multiplying the figure determined in step b) by the LEA's total membership of federally connected children for the current fiscal year.

  2. If an LEA is in a state that distributes state aid for education based on data similar to attendance data, the state educational agency may request that the Secretary use those data to calculate the ADA of the LEA's federally connected children. The Secretary determines whether those data are, in effect, equivalent to attendance data and, if so, allows the use of the requested data and determines the method by which the ADA of the LEA's federally connected children will be calculated.
