WELCOME, MRS. OSBORNE!
Student attendance is strongly correlated to academic achievement, graduation rates, and postsecondary success. Research indicates that schools and districts can have an impact on students absenteeism rates. Chronic absenteeism, which represents lost instructional time for students, is gaining nationwide awareness.
Chronic absenteeism is one of several indicators on the Oklahoma School Report Card, which is designed to give parents and communities an annual snapshot of student learning, progress, and achievement at the local level. Including chronic absenteeism on the new school report card will highlight local efforts to prioritize student attendance.
How does the State of Oklahoma define chronic absenteeism?
A student is considered chronically absent after missing 10 percent or more of school days. This includes both excused and unexcused absences.
Chronic absenteeism looks beyond truancy and average daily attendance to shine a light on how missing school days can affect an individual student's path to success.
