Absenteeism a problem in WV Schools

September 14th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

West Virginia’s schools have a major problem with absenteeism. More than 38 percent of schools in West Virginia did not meet a standard for student attendance, according to the annual Balanced Scorecard that was released Thursday. That means the schools had at least 20 percent of their student population with chronic absences. That, in turn, was calculated as students missing at least 10 percent of the time they were enrolled. Any way you describe the problem, said state schools Superintendent Steve Paine, West Virginia schools are missing the mark.
