Several years ago, I brainstormed an easy way to keep track of our homeschool attendance. I figured out quickly that the fewer number of pages I have to keep up with, the better!
In North Carolina, we have very few homeschool requirements, with attendance being one of those.
Because I thrive on simple, I needed an easy method that used only one piece of paper to keep track of our days in school.
For several years, it has been the perfect solution for my record keeping!
Homeschool Attendance Record for 2017-2018
Many of you have asked about my planning for the school year, and I’ll try my best to write a post about that in the coming few weeks. This attendance page is definitely one of my must-haves during my planning time!
→ Browse through all of my homeschool planning posts!
I print this on cardstock, front to back, and then bind it in my homeschool planning book. My planner is almost always open on our school table, so I never lose track of my lovely attendance page.
There are a couple of variations for using this planning page. Here are a few ideas for using it in your own homeschool:
→ 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.
→ 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.
This calendar runs with July-December 2017 on one side and January-June 2018 on the other.
Make sure you print it double-sided so you only have to keep up with one piece of paper!

Thank you so much for this, I am new at homeschooling and this will come in very handy for keeping track of attendance as well as how many hours per day. Thanks so much. God bless.
Welcome to homeschooling, Nanette! You’re in for a wonderful ride with your kiddos! I’m thrilled you’re able to use the attendance sheet. 🙂
Thank you so much for the time, effort, and energy you put into designing the attendance sheet! It is by far the best one I came across. I GREATLY appreciate it! THANK YOU!!!
I am so glad you can use it, Mary! I’ll publish the new one in the next couple of months. 🙂
Hey, this is super! Do you have an updated one for the next school year? I’d love that!!
Hey Libby! I don’t have the new one, but I definitely will make a new attendance record! I use this every year myself, too!
I’m not sure when I’ll be able to publish it. Mid-May maybe?
I am also interested in the 2018-2019 version! This is so incredibly helpful (this is our first year homeschooling coming up) to this newbie! Thank you!
I always have the new version posted by May 15th, however, this year I won’t have it published until mid-June. We just moved to a new house, and we’re busy trying to figure out how to get everything put away. 🙂
They WILL definitely be published this year, so stay tuned! 🙂
And oh how fun – your first year! I remember mine very fondly!
Congrats on the new house! We’ve used your record pages for the last couple years and I’ve loved them. Thanks! Can’t wait for the new one.
Thank you, Lisa! I’m so glad that page has been helpful! It will be posted today or tomorrow, when I can find a little pocket of time. 🙂
I’m only on our second year of homeschooling, but am incredible OCD when it comes to documentation. I went through several methods of tracking attendance previously, but your attendance sheet is BY FAR the easiest, simplest AND best way for our family! Thank you so much for coming up with it and for sharing it. Also…… hoping you create another one for 2018-2019!!! 🙂
Hey Cathy! I’m so glad that little page worked out well for your records! It will be posted when I can snag a few minutes! 🙂
Will there be a newvyear update for these?
Yes! Soon 🙂
Just wondering if you have had a free moment to do the 2018-2019 calendar yet?
Yes, it’s ready! Thank you for your patience! Make sure you’re a subscriber, because I’ll send a notification via email when it’s posted.
Thanks for the 17-18 attendance download. So simple and I am grateful. Are you going to upload one for new year 18-19? I’d sure appreciate it.
Yes!! It will be published 6/27 or 6/28/2018. It’s finished and ready, I just need to upload it!
