For the first time, the California Department of Education has released data on chronic absenteeism in California schools. A student is defined as chronically absent if he or she misses 10 percent of the school year for any reason — through excused or unexcused absences, or suspension. The database below shows absenteeism rates for all California schools, and is broken down by grade level. To find an individual school, type the name or a portion of the name in the box below. If a field is blank, that indicates that there were 10 or fewer students in a school or program (a continuation school, for example) or in a particular category or subcategory.
|School||Chronic Absentee Rate||Kindergarten||Grades 1-3||Grades 4-6||Grades 7-8||Grades 9-12|
