Many schools, districts, and communities are interested in analyzing their attendance data for the first time to see if chronic absence is a significant problem. To simplify the process, Attendance Works has partnered with Applied Survey Research to develop self-calculating spreadsheets for school districts called the District Attendance Tracking Tools (DATTs). These tools are especially effective for smaller districts with more limited data capacity. The companion tools are the School Attendance Tracking Tools (SATTs) which provides school-level analysis down to the individual student level.
Organized into three separate modules for grades K-5 (Elementary), 6-8 (Middle) and 9-12 (High), the DATTs and SATTs are designed for small to mid-sized school districts.
Users have a choice of the original version of the DATT which is applicable to any school district with a student information system or a California-specific version that also looks at truancy and suspensions.Visit Link
