The purpose of this paper is to study these secondary Indian students after a summer's training at Camp Chaparral in 1967 and determine what their attendance pattern was in school the following three semesters. The study will attempt to: 1. Determine the total percentage of absenteeism individually and as a group. 2. Determine the percentage of dropouts during the three semesters studied. 3. Compare frequency of absence of boys and girls. 4. Indicate which grade had the highest percentage of attendance. 5. Trace the movement of students if they transferred from one school to another. 6. Determine days of the week showing the greatest number of student absence.
