Count Day is Wednesday in Northville and all Michigan public schools.
Count Day is when all public schools in Michigan tally the number of students attending their schools. Count information is critical to districts, because each student translates into state funding.Pupils must be in attendance and receive instruction in all classes to be counted, according to the Michigan Department of Education. For students not in attendance, they may be counted for:
- 30 calendar days for excused absence following count day.
- 10 school days for unexcused absence following count day.
- 45 days for suspended students following count day.
