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 SY 2015-2016 and SY 2016-2017 have not been reported at that site. Data for SY 2017-2018 are the most recent available and were obtained by custom data request from the NMPED, November 2018.

Footnotes: Data reflect the number of habitually truant students enrolled in Charter, Off-Site, Public, and State-Supported schools.
See truancy rates by School District for SY 2017-2018 data from all NM school districts.
