Dropout Data

Published: 10/31/2022 12:04 PM

​​The dropout rate is the percent of students that drop out of school in grades seven (7) through twelve (12). 

​The dropout data is extracted from the student information system each year on November 1st. The dropout definition holds schools accountable for students for the full school year, including summer school.

2014-2015 through 2018-2019 School Year Dropout Data is available through the OpenHouse with Supplemental Data on the Assessment tab.

2019-2020 School Year Dropout Data is available through the School Report Card​ under Data Sets-Overview-Student-Dropout and Retention-Dropout. 

2022-2023 Dropout Guidelines


Dropout Data is lagged one year, so 2021-2022 school year data is not available at this time.
