School Enrollment Counts   

Enrollment Counts (For District Purposes only): These counts occur the first four weeks of the school year and are used to make sure enrollment counts are correct, locate students who have not yet attended school, and provide student head counts for allocation purposes.  This count is a physical head count of students and includes whole numbers of students.  If the student is enrolled on the day of the count, the student is counted as 1.

Quarterly Average Daily Enrollment (ADE) (For State and District Purposes) :  Starting with the 2015-2016 school year for each quarter, the number of days a student was enrolled divided by the number of days in the quarter is the ADE for a student.  Each student’s  ADE is added for a school and reported to the Nevada Department of Education (NDE).  The NDE then pays the District’s apportionment based on the ADE number.  On the last day of the quarter, the ADE is calculated and students may be represented by a fractional number if they were not enrolled the entire quarter.

Validation Day (For State and District Purposes):  Starting with the 2015-2016 school year, the Nevada Department of Education (NDE) pulls numbers from the District’s student information system on October 1 of each school year.  These numbers are used to determine enrollment in the District overall as well as enrollment in special programs such as Gifted and Talented, Free and Reduced Lunch, Special Education, and English Language Learners.   Students enrolled in the District and/or enrolled in Special Programs are counted in whole numbers.  The District is given an opportunity to validate the numbers.

Count Day (For State and District Purposes): Prior to the 2015-2016 school year, the Nevada Department of Education (NDE) pulled numbers from the District’s student information system on the fourth Friday after the start of the school year.  These numbers were used to determine enrollment in the District overall and based apportionment on the number of students enrolled on this day. Students enrolled in the District for count day were counted in whole numbers.  The District was given an opportunity to validate the numbers.
