In SY 2020–21, the DOE will track and follow up upon the attendance for every student every day (Monday through Friday), regardless as to whether those students are engaged in remote or in-person learning, and schools will use the daily attendance values of
P=Present and A=Absent for in-class attendance
O=Present and M=Absent for remote attendance.
The definition of “present” is as follows:
In Person: Student is physically present in the classroom / school learning environment for instruction during the scheduled school day.
Remote: Student is virtually present in a virtual learning environment for synchronous instruction during the scheduled school day.
