Students Absent Fewer Than 5 Days

The percentage of students absent from school fewer than 5 days (i.e. 4.5 or fewer days) during the September to June school year. Summer school attendance is excluded.

The percentage is computed by dividing the number of students absent fewer than 5 days by the number of students in membership more than 90 days at a given school during the September to June school year.

Reported since November 1991: School, System, and State levels.
