IntePort Ed-Fi Chronic Absenteeism App
Change the story of Chronic Absenteeism with an effective app that identifies trends as they happen.
Chronic absenteeism is generally defined as a student missing 10% or more school. This percentage of time spent out of class significantly affects the student’s educational success and the school’s ADA funding, both critical to advancement.
- More than one-sixth of K-12 students are chronically absent
- A student with one year of chronic absenteeism between 8-12th grade is 7x more likely to drop out
Recognizing and tracking chronic absenteeism allows staff and faculty to intervene and assist both students and their families in reversing the trend. Changing the story, even slightly, positively impacts the future of both the student and the school.
IntePort's Ed-Fi Chronic Absenteeism App gives you an immediate, detailed overview of what's happening with your students both now and in the past, with interactive year-to-date views of Absenteeism and Attendance sliced by school, grade, race and sex, populated with Ed-Fi's sample data so you can quickly see how the analytics work and what they can do for your students. The included pre-built reports can be edited and shared securely across your district, and it's easy to create new visuals within Power BI's drag and drop interface.
At any time you can replace the sample dataset with your district's SIS data by deploying and configuring IntePort's Ed-Fi Implementation Suite for Azure (see Moving to Production below), and then follow the simple steps described here.

The Ed-Fi Alliance provides valuable K-12 data standards and technologies to enable interoperability across disparate systems (SIS, Assessment, etc.) and holistic, student-centric analytics. However, effectively implementing and supporting the technologies Ed-Fi provides still requires considerable cloud and technical expertise - which is where we come in.
IntePort’s Ed-Fi Implementation Suite for Azure solution makes it simple for K-12 IT groups to deploy the full Ed-Fi technology stack for one or multiple districts in minutes – with no cloud or technical expertise required. That solution is available for immediate download on the Azure Marketplace here and includes a 30-day free-trial period.
