Keith, Jo Ann; And Others
Ten tables, four graphs, and summary discussions of salient statistics present pertinent information on dropout and high school graduation rates for Colorado public schools for the 1989-90 school year. Tabulated data, along with illustrative figures, indicate: (1) graduation rates by ethnic/racial group, gender, and size of school district; and (2) dropout rates by grade level, gender, ethnic/racial group, and school district. Trend data for dropouts are shown for 1987-88 through 1989-90, and data are provided for alternative schools for both dropouts and graduates. Colorado's dropout rate for the 1989-90 school year was 4.1% (11,075 out of 273,440 students), which represents a decrease by 0.1% from the 1988-89 rate. The graduation rate for the Class of 1990 was 80% (32,967 students), and the completion rate was 81.3%. (TJH)
