Question:
Is there a way to "recoup" ADA through Saturday school programs?

Answer: No. If you offer a Saturday instructional day, it counts as a full day of instruction and must be factored as such in your ADA calculations. There is no way to "make up" a day of instruction. Saturday attendance tends to be significantly lower than attendance on a traditional school day, offering Saturday school would most likely have a negative net effect on your school's ADA.
