Is membership the same as enrollment?
Membership is slightly different from enrollment. Membership does not include those students who are served in the district for fewer than two hours per day. Membership and Eligibility for Attendance and Foundation School Program (FSP) Funding defines membership as follows:
Both membership and eligibility to generate average daily attendance (ADA) are related to the amount of time that a student receives instruction each day. However, they are not the same. A student is in membership in your district if the student is enrolled in the district and is either
- scheduled to attend at least two hours of instruction each school day or
- participates in an alternative attendance accounting program.
