October to December

October

Student Attendance Data Online (Part Two) – Term 3, 2016

This Commonwealth Department of Education and Training collection provides student attendance information and must be completed by schools, campuses, or systems/dioceses on behalf of their schools, and will cover Term 3 of the 2016 school year.

Please note that from 2015, schools are required to report student attendance data twice a year (August for Semester 1 and October for Term 3) and the proportion of students attending school for 90% or more of the time. Please refer to Circular 2016/013 for more information.

The Student Attendance System (STATS) has been developed specifically to assist non-government schools to provide student attendance information. STATS enables individual schools – or their systems/dioceses – to provide the information in the following ways:

  • by entering information using online screens, or
  • by uploading student attendance data files

In accordance with the Schools Assistance Act 2008, individual school Funding Agreements covering both government and non‐government sectors are required to provide information in relation to student attendance. Since 2009, as part of this reporting obligation, each school’s attendance rate is to be published by the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA), as well as there being aggregate level reporting by ACARA and the Council of Australian Governments.

Once your 2016 student attendance data is correctly submitted using STATS schools will be deemed to have met their obligations in regard to reporting this year’s school attendance data.

The STATS website can be accessed via the School Service Point (SSP).
