Chronic Absenteeism Data Reporting

Chronic Absenteeism is one of the areas which determines school accountability. A student is defined as being chronically absent if the student is enrolled a minimum of 10 days (60 days for correctional facilities) and absent 10% or more of the days enrolled. Excused absences are not taken into account to make this determination.
