I don't mention the attendance in the IEP with much more than a generic sentence unless it has been a problem. "XXX is in good general health and has good (or average or fair) attendance."

The student's IEP file and Cumulative file are separate beasts and are often not even stored in the same place. The Cum File includes the child's school history, grades, schoolwide testing results and reports, attendance, home addresses, discipline records, parent information, etc.

The IEP file will include everything SpEd related: referrals, evals, IEPS, reevals, staffings and all the supporting documentation and test results. In the elementary years, you will often mention the classes the student takes and their "grades" if they are given. In High School, there is a part of the IEP where you can list the classes taken.

There are conditions/rules/laws about co-mingling the two files. Some schools interpret the laws differently. Some schools keep them totally separate, some keep them side by side in the same place, some put the cum file in a certain colored folder to indicate there are more records elsewhere. You need to find out how your school does it and how you access that.

If you are just doing pullout and push in, the homeroom teacher and front office will manage attendance records. You can access it as needed for issues, your records, the IEP meetings.
