DATA & REPORTS: DROPOUT
& HIGH SCHOOL COMPLETION REPORT
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.
Use the links below to
access data reported prior to those that appear in the 2001-2002 report:
Dropout Report 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
Estimated High School
Cohort Graduation Rates This report summarizes the estimated cohort graduation rate for each Vermont
public high school for the classes of 1999 and 2000 combined. This rate differs from
the annual graduation rate published by the department in that it attempts to estimate
the cumulative graduation rate for students who began high school in grade nine,
not simply the rate for seniors who subsequently graduate in the Spring of their
senior year. For additional information about the report, read the calculation overview.
Organized by high school,
the graduation rate is calculated by dividing the number of promoted 12th-graders
by the adjusted 12th-grade enrollment. Data are presented for each Vermont high school.
