Meridian Community,

Over the last four years Meridian School District has seen a double digit increase in the number of students who are chronically absent from school.

The term chronically absent refers to students who miss 10% (18 days) or more in a school year regardless of whether or not the absence was excused or unexcused.  (These are not the students who are occasionally absent for health reasons and are absent less than 10% of the time.)
