Why This Indicator Matters

Based on a 180-day school year, any student who misses 18 days or more per year — or about two days per month — is considered chronically absent. When students are young, too many absences can reduce their chances of reading proficiently by third grade, a key indicator of long-term academic success.  When students are older, absenteeism places them at risk of not graduating high school, not attending college or failing to find a meaningful career.
