This Story Map uses newly released chronic absence data from the California Department of Education for the 2016-17 school year to highlight schools, counties, and regions that are doing well and those that need additional support, so all students have an equal opportunity to learn. These maps illustrate the findings of a deeper analysis of the statewide chronic absence data released by the California Department of Education in 2017, via DataQuest.
