Data Provided By

Definitions: A student is identified as a Habitual Truant when the student has accumulated 10 or more days truant. Both half and full day truancy are used by the PED to calculate truancy rates.  
The time frames reflect school years (SY).

Data Source: Data prior to SY 2015-2016 had been available at New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) Fact Sheets, "Habitual Truant Students by District and School Type": http://www.ped.state.nm.us/it/schoolfactsheets.html. Data for all other school years were obtained by custom data request from the NMPED.

Footnotes: Data reflect the number of habitually truant students enrolled in Charter, Off-Site, Public, and State-Supported schools.
