Attorney General Kamala Harris issued her fourth annual statewide report on elementary school truancy and chronic absence in California, In School + On Track 2016. Drawing from four years of longitudinal data — a sample of almost half a million K-5 students — this year’s report includes the most comprehensive analysis to date on the high rates of absenteeism among California’s elementary school students. The report finds that California continues to face an attendance crisis, one that disproportionately affects African American, Native American, and Pacific Islander students, special education students, and foster and homeless youth.
