Since the policy is determined by the district, the state does not need to be informed of any changes. If a rate increases due to a change in policy or practice and the school/district does not make AYP as a result of the increase, an appeal can be made to explain the increase. (NOTE: A statewide definition of unexcused absences is being developed.
