Here are the Ottawa schools with the highest and lowest absence rates
Ottawa’s largest school board is reporting an average of a nearly 25 per cent absence rate so far this year, a week after students returned for in-person learning.
The province is no longer publishing information on COVID-19 in schools, but is sharing data on absences online, whether they are related to COVID-19 or not.
The data shared Monday showed Ottawa-Carleton District Board Schools reported an average 24.5 per cent absence rate among students and staff.
However, only 24 of the board’s 142 schools reported absence rates. No elementary schools reported data because Friday was a P.A. day and students were off.
The Ottawa Catholic School Board reported an average 13.5 per cent absence rate, among 28 schools.
The province has said families will be notified when 30 per cent of students and staff are absent. Four OCDSB schools cracked that threshold. No Ottawa Catholic School Board schools have exceeded the 30 per cent threshold, according to the data.
The OCDSB typically sees an average of about seven per cent absence at the elementary level and 17 per cent at the high school level. However, that can vary by program and school; for example, alternate sites tend to have higher absence numbers than average.
Provincewide, more than 330 schools reported absence rates higher than 30 per cent. Twenty-one of them had absence rates above 80 per cent.
Data was made available for 3,451 of the province’s 4,844 schools.
Here are the schools in each Ottawa board reporting the highest and lowest absentee rates as of the end of last week. For a full list, you can visit the Ontario government's website.
