FAQ's Attendance & Required Reporting
This section is a host for questions and answers from the field related to 21st Century Community Learning Centers Required Reporting process for SIS and Student Attendance.
All 21st CCLC student attendance data is required to be entered in each site’s SIS and uploaded to ADE via AzEDS. This includes attendance from summer, fall, and spring terms. For more information, please contact the 21st Data CCLC Inbox at [email protected].
The first thing any new 21st CCLC leader should do for 21st CCLC attendance is connect with the district Student Information System (SIS) manager and/or team. Knowing which vendor your district uses (there are about 15 that currently work with AzEDS) and how that particular vendor handles 21st CCLC data will help you learn which areas to focus on and which questions to ask.
You should also determine who will be responsible for each aspect of 21st CCLC attendance- taking attendance, collecting, attendance, entering attendance into the SIS, uploading to AzEDS, checking for accurate data in AzEDS, and troubleshooting any integrity errors or other issues with data before the due dates. Each district will determine who is responsible for these among themselves but we highly recommend that this be a formal discussion with agreed upon roles so that it is clear what your role will be.
After reviewing these FAQs and all 21st CCLC Student Program Attendance documentation, reach out to us at the Data Inbox if you have additional questions. [email protected].
|SIS Fiscal YEar||start Date||End Date|
AzEDS will accept any student attendance in the SIS year within these start and end dates, including attendance on weekends, holiday breaks, national holidays, and before July 1. The 21st CCLC Program Association tells AzEDS to allow attendance collection to cross the usual July 1 barrier. Since students need to have a main enrollment for the year in order to be attached to the 21st CCLC program, attendance from summer school (or any activity held before the first day of school) may have to be back entered once the school year has started, depending on the vendor. Traditionally, a student’s main enrollment at a school does not start until the first day of school.
ADE has several reports about the 21st CCLC student attendance data that is uploaded to AzEDS, both pre and post integrity. All reports can be found in ADEConnect > AzEDS Portal > Reports > Support Program.
Pre-integrity: These reports will give information about what data has been sent to AzEDS and will appear within a few minutes of the transaction completing.
- SUPP10- The SUPP10 will provide information on what Support Program data has been submitted for students. In the case of 21st CCLC, all Program Association dates sent to AzEDS will display in the SUPP10
- CCLC10- The CCLC10 will provide all 21st CCLC Student Program Attendance that has been submitted to AzEDS, including dates of attendance and attendance start and end times.
Post-integrity: These reports will give information about what has been send to AzEDS and passed the integrity rules applied to AzEDS and 21st CCLC data.
21st CCLC has four integrity rules:
|-50028||Student failed integrity because 21st CCLC program attendance was submitted without a 21st CCLC program association|
|-50029||Student failed integrity because the submitted 21st CCLC program association dates are not within the allowable range for the year|
|-50030||Student failed integrity because one or more 21st CCLC program attendance events was submitted with a date that was not inside the submitted 21st CCLC program association dates|
|-50031||Student failed integrity because one or more 21st CCLC program attendance events are missing a begin/end time for the attendance event|
- CCLC20- The CCLC20 report gives student specific information about the number of days and hours a student has attended, by school.
- CCLC15- The CCLC15 report gives aggregate attendance counts in various attendance bands (including regular attendees) by school, viewable by LEA.
Additional reports related to Activity Data reporting will be developed and released in FY23.
If you do not have access to the AzEDS Portal, contact your Entity Administrator and ask to be given access as “AzEDS Data Coordinator - Support Program Reports.”
Yes, in your own Student Information System (SIS), the attendance reported will be viewable in real time by anyone with access to your SIS. This attendance data will enable ADE to answer many federal reporting questions connected to the attendance data, removing the burden of reporting federal student participation data from Arizona’s 21st CCLC sites. Additional reporting functionality in your SIS may be possible for your own SIS vendors to develop/provide for you, but that question is best answered in consultation with your SIS vendors.
Students have to have a main enrollment at a 21st CCLC school when you enter their student attendance. Once this association has occurred, you can (back) enter attendance for the summer term, regardless of the physical location of the summer classes.
ADE does not require a calendar for 21st CCLC student attendance. HOWEVER, your SIS vendor may require all attendance to be a part of a calendar. Please contact your SIS vendor for more guidance.
There are no tracks required for the 21st CCLC program and tracks will have no effect on 21st CCLC attendance submission. If your vendor requires a track, please contact them for guidance.
For 21st CCLC attendance, you are asked to report if a student is present. We will not use data uploaded from students who did not attend or were absent, only if they were present on a given attendance day.

Student attendance uploaded to AzEDS by SIS minimum weekly.
Student Attendance will now be required to report using begin/end times for all attendance events
- Both the attendance date and begin/end times required in upload.
- No rounding on begin/end times (if it ran 3:50-4:10, use those as begin/end times)
- “Hours” of attendance are calculated by ADE in reporting, visible by student in the CCLC20 report.
Report hours accurate to when the student was present.
Yes. Starting in FY22 and going forward, there is only one 21st CCLC program name: 21st CCLC.
Exit Codes are codes entered when a student leaves a 21st CCLC program. These are conditionally required. The 21st CCLC Exit Codes are as follows:
|code Value||Short description||description|
|CCLC01||Reached 30 days of attendance and services no longer needed||Reached 30 day of attendance and services no longer needed|
|CCLC02||Dropped from prgram due to lack of attendance||Dropped from program due to lack of attendance|
|CCLC03||Participation ended in program||Participation ended in Program|
All districts make decisions about who can access this data so contact your Entity Administrator to determine access. The permissions role of AzEDS Data Coordinator- Support Programs Reports should grant access to view 21st CCLC reports.
Yes. New in FY23, an Activity Type Descriptor is required for each attendance event.
The below chart includes the AzEDS Activity Type Descriptor Code Value, definition, and possible examples. To determine which code should be selected for a class/activity, consult with the 21st CCLC program coordinator/director to ensure the activity selected aligns to each school’s program goals and requirements. For additional information about the APR requirements see the 21st CCLC APR Reporting Guide on the 21st CCLC Annual Performance Report page of the 21st CCLC website.

Each 21st CCLC program is required to report on the federally required Annual Performance Report information about the Activities offered during the program year.
Each program must report:
- How many participants attended this Activity during the term (school year or summer)?
- How many total hours of this Activity did you offer during the term (school year or summer)?
In an effort to eliminate the burden that reporting these two federally required data elements completely and accurately places on schools and districts, 21st CCLC is collecting this data with program attendance so that ADE can calculate both responses for each school.
On 11-28-22, 21st CCLC released updated information with the AzEDS team related to 21st CCLC Summer program participation and Summer Withdrawal codes, highlighting where 21st CCLC program information needs to be maintained.
