Transiency and Stability in the Los Angeles Unified School District, 1982-1983. Publication No. 448.
Los Angeles Unified School District, CA. Research and Evaluation Branch.
This report on transiency and stability in the Los Angeles Unified School District continues a series that has been augmented annually since 1968-69. Transiency refers to the adjusted numbers of entrants and leavers, expressed as a percentage (rate); stability refers to the student population that has remained in the school all year, expressed as a percentage (rate) of the starting enrollment. Information on the number of students who entered and left each month was gathered from all regular and magnet schools. Rankings were computed for elementary, secondary, and magnet schools by administrative region, with a district summary. Transiency rates reported in this study cannot be directly compared to previous years because a new formula was used to compute transiency. Overall, the stability rate declined from 1978-79 to 1980-81, from 76.6 percent to 74.1 percent, with noteworthy improvements over the next two years. The overall transiency rate for 1982-83, 39.1 percent, can be used as a baseline for comparing future rates. Historical data are reported for 1968-1978 and 1978-1982. Statistical data are included on seven tables. (FMW)
