Attendance Projections

Attendance projections are estimates of student average daily attendance by program or instructional setting. The Texas Education Agency develops these projections and provides them to the Texas Legislature by March 1 of each odd-numbered year. The legislature then uses these projections to determine the cost of public education for the next biennium. The finalized numbers are used for the legislative planning estimates (identified as LPE) found in the Summary of Finances state aid reports.
