Superintendent's Annual Attendance Report (SAAR)

Published: 1/10/2018 2:59 PM

The Superintendent’s Annual Attendance (SAAR) Report provides a summary of each district's aggregate attendance data for the entire school year. Due to the nature of SAAR, the tool has been designed to allow very granular control of the data reported to assist in research and verification.

SAAR is the core report used to determine funding based on attendance. School superintendents in Kentucky must submit an annual report of student attendance to the Commissioner of Education by June 30 each year. The SAAR report is submitted through a KDE web page application.
Current year SAAR data will not be available until after August 1 each year.
