Chronically absent rate for Native American youth worst in state at 30 percent

from The Oregonian

Roughly a third of Oregon's American Indian and Alaskan Native students were chronically absent last year, the worst statewide rate out of student groups. The Oregon Department of Education released data showing the percentage of students who attended at least 90 percent of school days. Statewide about 17 percent, or nearly 94,000 students, missed that benchmark. The state provided data broken down by grade and student groups, including low-income students, African American students, students with disabilities and others, for districts and schools. Data shows that attendance rates for the state's approximately 7,850 Native students has hardly budged since the 2013-2014 school year, with about 30 percent missing too much class. more
