5 Day Attendance Reconciliation

You must satisfy the requirements of the 5 Day Attendance Reconciliation regulations. Minute Menu HX has two reports that can assist in this task:

  • 5 Day Attendance Report
  • Child Attendance Reconciliation Report

5 Day Attendance Report

This report provides a chart of each child claimed over any five-day period. Use this report to reconcile the children observed at meals with the children claimed for those same meals (as listed on this report). This report sufficies in many states that interpret the 5 Day Attendance Reconciliation as a comparison of the children in the home at the current meal being observed with the children being claimed at that same meal for the last five days.

However, some states require that you reconcile the schedules of the children from the child enrollment forms with the children that were actually claimed. If this is the case in your state, you should also print the Child Attendance Reconciliation report. For more information, see Child Attendance Reconciliation Report.
