Prior to the 2001-2002 school year, the Vermont Agency of Education published event dropout and high school completion rates in two separate reports. Beginning with the 2001-2002 school year the department now presents event dropout and completion data in a single report along with an estimated cohort completion rate. This change reflects the department's commitment to streamlining data management.
This report summarizes the number of students grades 7 through 12 who withdraw from
secondary schools in Vermont during the school year or
preceding summer. Statistics are calculated as an event
drop out rate, which is the number of dropouts in a
particular grade level divided by the adjusted
enrollment for that grade level in a single school
