October Count

This information is used to determine the school demographics, number of students in instructional programs, free and reduced lunch counts, and distribution of School Finances across the state.

This page includes submissions related resources for the October Count Data Collection. Please go to the Audits webpage for resources related to the October Count Audit (resources for the At-Risk Audit and EL Count Audit are also found there).

Data Validation Resources
