Data Source: Rhode Island Department of Elementary and Secondary Education

Footnotes: Note that these numbers may not include some children who miss more than 18 days of school but who are officially disenrolled in one district and have not yet enrolled in another district. This sometimes happens when children are homeless, live in unstable living situations, are transitioning from an out-of-home placement or miss school due to extended travel out of state or out of the country.
