Definitions: Percent of enrolled public school students who are chronically absent from school

Chronic absenteeism is defined as being absent from school for at least 10 percent of the school days in which the student is enrolled. The student count includes any student enrolled for at least 10 days at a specific school during the 2015-2016 school year. Because chronic absenteeism is calculated at the school level, any student with 10 days of enrollment at multiple schools would be included in the statewide count multiple times.
