The following data was provided by the federal government, and was compiled by the Office for Civil Rights in the U.S. Department of Education as part of its Civil Rights Data Collection survey for the 2009-2010 school year. 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS found inconsistencies in the data -- some districts counted professional development days as teacher absences, used different definitions for what qualifies as an absence, and counted non-classroom staff as teachers.
If you'd like more information on your district's data, please contact your district directly.
Editor's note: some districts are not included in this map because they did not submit data to the federal government.
