DCPS at a Glance: Attendance

Attendance and Truancy

Regular school attendance is critical for academic success. Our goal is to ensure that every student attends school regularly and on-time. In-seat attendance (ISA) measures the average percent of students who are attending school, or in-seat. The truancy rate gives the percent of students who are considered truant. Both ISA and truancy rates reported below have been recalculated using the more stringent business rules adopted in school year 2013-14.

In-Seat Attendance Graph - Attendance rose from 84.4% to 89.5% between SY 09-10 and SY 14-15.

Truancy Rates for SY09-10 through SY14-15 - Truancy decreased from 31.6% to 17.2%
