Official Funding Time

State funding for Texas public schools is based on the average daily attendance (ADA) of all students. The official funding time varies for different grade levels. Although parents’ efforts are appreciated in ensuring their children are counted present for the official funding time so that the district is able to make good use of budget in providing a quality education, this is separate from the compulsory attendance law that requires students to be in attendance the entire instructional day.
