Chronic Absenteeism/Truancy

Chronically absent: Any student in grade K-12 who misses 50 percent or more of the instructional day for any reason for 10 percent (or more) of the enrollment period.

      All types of absences contribute to  chronic absenteeism:

     Excused Absences

     Unexcused Absences

     Suspensions

     A student is absent if he or she is not physically on school grounds and is not participating in instruction or instruction-related activities at an approved off-grounds location for the school day.


Truant: A student between the ages 6– 17  who has accumulated unexcused absences on three consecutive days or has accumulated a total of five or more unexcused absences during the academic year.

      Only full-day unexcused absences contribute to truancy.

      Excused absences and suspensions do not affect truancy
