Chicago’s first-day attendance includes elementary schools, high schools and charters. For all school types, the number of students who actually showed up is compared to enrollment estimates that were done last winter.
|First day membership||Attendance rate|
|High schools||101,860||100 percent|
|Elementary schools||247,181||87.9 percent|
Note: Charter attendance based partly on district’s assumption that all seats were filled at charters that didn’t report first-day figures. Among charters that did report, attendance was 85 percent.
