We currently have 8 days worth of attendance data as published in The Times. Some trends are already apparent. For example, for the 11 high schools, the best in class is Magnet High with an average absentee score of 2.2%. Caddo Parish has an average absentee score of 4.8%.
It would be good to check your neighborhood school against these benchmarks. Remember, the child can not perform if he or she is not in school.
