This value is calculated based on the Attendance codes selected for â€œStudent Truancyâ€ on the MA DOE Parameters screen. Please check that all Attendance codes for Daily â€œAbsent Unexcusedâ€ have been selected in the "Student Truancy" box at each of your schools. Go to DOE ID Manager > Maintenance DOE > Parameters. Repeat for each of your schools.
NOTE: The DOE updated the DOE052 in August 2011 to replace â€˜truantâ€™ language with â€˜days of unexcused absences.â€™
