Welcome to the Chronic Absenteeism Starter Kit!


The Chronic Absenteeism Starter Kit provides step-by-step instructions to technical and non-technical users on how to implement the Ed-Fi Chronic Absenteeism solution. 

The Starter Kit is divided into two parts. 

  • Demonstration Guide provides you with the ability to login to a hosted version of the Chronic Absenteeism solution with sample data, so that you can look around and kick-the-tires before setting it up yourself.
  • Setup Guide provides detail on how to customize the Chronic Absenteeism solution you explored in the Quick Start to fit your unique needs such as setting the solution up on your own infrastructure, configuring your student information system for Ed-Fi integration, and loading test data. Completing the Setup Guide will result in a test environment intended to mimic your production environment. It is recommended that you have access to resource(s) that have a basic knowledge of Windows Server, Microsoft SQL Server, and Power BI. 

For additional information on skills and technology used — and suggested team members to engage when using this Starter Kit — please see the General Reference and Starter Kit Specific Reference pages.
