Previous OCID analysis identified severe chronic absenteeism (missing an average of 1 school day every week) as one of the top 3 barriers to 4-year graduation, one measure of educational success. Based on this finding, OCID explored further to provide a foundational overview of students in the Class of 2020 who exeperienced severe chronic absenteeism to guide decisions focused on better supporting children in Oregon.
OCID’s resources on severe chronic absenteeism include a foundational fact sheet, a timing focused infographic, and interactive data visualizations that allow deeper, individualized exploration.
