I am so tickled that the Homeschool Attendance Record for 2022-2023 school year is here! 🎉
This is the 10th year of this lovely one-page Homeschool Attendance Record, and I am so thankful it blesses all of you as it does me. Any way that we as homeschool mothers can streamline our efforts will pay off in spades.
Putting this simple little page on just one sheet of paper – printed front and back – helps decrease our paper piles. And yahoo for decreased piles!
I’ll show you exactly how I use this attendance record each year and give you some other ideas that might be helpful in your own home.

Homeschool Attendance Record for 2022-2023
I am required by my state to keep an attendance record, so I make sure this is a priority. Because I have a good number of children and a million balls in the air, I need my state requirements to be as streamlined as possible.
Ten years ago I brainstormed this idea to put the attendance on one sheet of paper and haven’t looked back!
I keep my record in the front of my homeschool mom binder that is almost always open on the school table. It contains all of the schedules, plans, and miscellaneous things that I use each day to keep me on track.
Even though I have a lot of children, I still only use one check mark each day to mark a school day as in session. If one of my children is not in school for some reason (sickness, etc.), I just mark that on the side.
I also keep track of days and weeks we take off, any camps or major academic events, our outside class calendar, and field trips on this one sheet of paper.
Here are some ideas of how you can use this calendar:
→ Place a check mark in the days your children complete school. This is what I do.
→ If you need to keep track of multiple kiddos, just create a key. For example, Child #1 is a check mark. Child #2 is a circle. Child #3 is a triangle. Or you could color code them and use a check mark or dot. For example, Child #1 is a blue check. Child #2 is a red check. Child #3 is a green check.
→ If you already know you won’t do school for big chunks of time (vacation, for example), go ahead and cross those off your calendar. It makes it easier to see the big picture.
How to Use the Homeschool Attendance Record
At the end of each month, you’ll see two slots. Here is how to fill them in:
→ Beside Total Days: Write the total school days completed for the month.
→ Beside Cumulative: Keep a running tally of the total school days completed for the year. Just add on the days completed each month.
Here’s a look at my attendance calendar this previous school year.
This calendar runs with July-December 2022 on one side and January-June 2023 on the other.
Make sure you print it double-sided so you only have to keep up with one piece of paper!
