Attendance Data Definition
A.D.A. and A.D.M. are reported as district-level figures by public school districts at the end of the school year.
A.D.A. is Average Daily Attendance.
This is the aggregate number of pupils "attending", or present each day, divided by the number of days the school is actually in session.
A.D.M. is Average Daily Membership.
This is the aggregate number of pupils "belonging", whether present or absent each day, divided by the number of days the school is actually in session.
The average percent in attendance can be found by dividing A.D.A. (actual attendance) by A.D.M. (potential attendance).
