Dropout Count Procedural Handbook.
Nevada State Dept. of Education, Carson City. Planning, Research and Evaluation Branch.
This manual outlines the procedure for counting dropouts from the Nevada schools. The State Department of Education instituted a new dropout counting procedure to its student accounting system in January 1988 as part of its response to recommendations of a task force on at-risk youth. The count is taken from each secondary school and includes students who finished grade 8 but did not enroll in grade 9, as well as students in grades 9, 10, 11, and 12. An outline of the general procedure and a definition of the dropout period are provided; and how withdrawals are recorded, how dropouts are reported, and the codes used in counting students as withdrawals are described. Appendix A lists school district liaisons. Appendices B and C provide the reporting form and a schematic of the dropout period, respectively. (SLD)
