  • PLEASE BE ADVISED: As a result of the statewide physical school closures that occurred in February/March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the CDE has determined that the 2019–20 absenteeism data are not valid and reliable for the 2019–20 academic year; therefore, the CDE has not processed these data and they are unavailable for public release. For more information about the impact of COVID-19 on data reporting for the 2019–20 academic year, please visit the CDE COVID-19 and Data Reporting webpage.
