The department monitors state school student attendance to work with schools and parents/carers to help maximise attendance all day, every school day.
Student attendance is measured and reported by the department as a rate, based on comparing the number of schools days attended to the total possible days attended.
The measure is calculated by applying the nationally agreed definition for student attendance, using data from semester 1 each year.
Information is available in Adobe PDF, Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel formats. Select the format you prefer to download the file.
From 2013, attendance rates are calculated using a new methodology designed to capture a greater range of student data. Due to this change any comparisons with previous years should be avoided.
