Human Error and ADA (Average Daily Attendance)

Excerpt

It is no surprise that human error is the largest contributing source of inaccurate information in determining ADA. Each state uses different methods to determine how many students are in their building at any given time. Some states rely on the number of registered students at the start of the school year, and some on attendance taken every day and averaged monthly or quarterly. Either way, ADA is essential for state funding.
