Avoiding Chronic Absenteeism Students’ school attendance is strongly correlated to academic achievement, graduation rates,

Avoiding Chronic Absenteeism Students’ school attendance is strongly correlated to academic achievement, graduation rates, and postsecondary success. A student is considered chronically absent after missing 10 percent or more of school days. This includes both excused and unexcused absences. Missing 10 percent of school days would be approximately 18 days in a normal 180 -day school year - just two days per month. Chronic absenteeism results in lost instructional time for students. Site specific chronic absenteeism information can be found on the Oklahoma State Report Card at www. oklaschools. com. For more information on the impact of attendance on student progress, visit www. attendanceworks. org. 16
