This study explored how chronic absenteeism impacted K-3 students’ academic performance in reading. The study focused on retention rates of chronically absent male and female students, and perceptions and causes of chronic absenteeism as perceived by principals, district administrators, and a truancy officer. Fifty-four students participated in the study across six elementary schools in the district. Results were collected through Star Early Literacy and Star Reading benchmark assessments, interviews, and a questionnaire. A paired samples t test, descriptive statistics, and chi square tests were implemented to analyze significant difference. The results showed no significant difference between pre- and posttest scores for first through third grade students, but a significant difference for kindergarten students. There was no significant difference between genders.
