Student attendance measures whether students are considered "model attendees". A "model attendee" is a student who is in attendance for at least 96% of his or her enrolled days during the school year (persistent attendee); or a student who has improved his or her attendance by at least three percentage points from the prior to current school year (improving attendee). Student attendance also considers the percentage of students who are not chronically absent, or missing more than 10% of enrolled days during the school year. Only students who spend most of the school year enrolled in the school are included when reporting the attendance of students.
