Welcome to the Chronic Absenteeism Solution Guide For Vendors!



About the Chronic Absenteeism Solution Guide

The Chronic Absenteeism Starter Kit is a step-by-step guide designed to help local education agencies, AKA school districts, identify trends in student attendance using accurate, real-time attendance data and facilitate earlier intervention to better support students. 

This Solution Guide for addressing chronic absenteeism helps Student Information System vendors take the necessary steps to provide districts with the data needed to power the starter kit.  

Vendor support for chronic absenteeism encompasses the following steps: 

  • Learn. The Ed-Fi website has detail on Chronic Absenteeism, and information about how others in the Ed-Fi Community have addressed the problem. Read more about how to Help School Districts Address Chronic Absenteeism on Ed-Fi.org.
  • Develop. Add Ed-Fi capabilities to your product to support customers addressing chronic absenteeism. You will find the Chronic Absenteeism Vendor Developer Guide below.
  • Test. To fully realize the benefits of the Chronic Absenteeism Starter Kit, and ensure your solution is field ready, we recommend selecting and working with an existing district customer to test your integration in a live, Ed-Fi implementation of the starter kit. Securing a district customer will allow you a reference point for future adoptees of this starter kit. Working with a local district agency is not required but it is strongly recommended.
  • Certify. For vendor organizations that have completed integration with the starter kit using the vendor developer guide, apply for the API Domain Certification so you may be listed as a verified partner on Ed-Fi.org.
