About the Report

Frontline Research & Learning Institute's inaugural annual report also represents an industry first. Analyzing data from over 5,000 K-12 organizations using Frontline’s absence and substitute management tool, the National 2015-16 Employee Absence Report shares insights from over 2,733,460 employees and 38,871,571 absences—data so comprehensive that the Center for Research and Reform in Education at Johns Hopkins University has deemed it representative of national trends. Never before has the K-12 community had access to such insights at this scale.
