TEA issued a letter on the 21-22 Operational Minutes Adjustment using the following methodology:
The agency will compare each LEA’s average actual percentage attendance rate for the first through fourth six-week attendance reporting periods of the 2021-2022 school year with the Target Percentage Attendance Rate (TPAR). If the agency determines that the LEA experienced an average actual percentage attendance rate (PIA) that is less than the TPAR, the agency will adjust operational minutes for that LEA as necessary to increase the average actual percentage attendance rate to the TPAR. This adjustment will also apply to attendance reported in special instructional settings.
