Dropout Report for 1988-89: Part 2.
Houston Independent School District, TX. Dept. of Research and Evaluation.
This publication is the second of two dropout reports prepared in 1988-89 for the Houston (Texas) Independent School District. The first report presented dropout data for each of the district's secondary schools as well as for the district as a whole. This follow-up report on HISD's 1988-89 dropouts presents a districtwide perspective on demographic characteristics and at-risk status, as well as an estimated longitudinal dropout rate based on 1988-89 data. The report presents and provides answers to the following research questions: (1) What was the 1988-89 dropout rate for HISD secondary students? (2) What were dropout rates by grade? (3) What were dropout rates by age? (4) What was the racial/ethnic composition of the HISD secondary students who became 1988-89 dropouts? (5) What was the 1988-89 dropout rate for each of the four major racial/ethnic categories in HISD? (6) Have dropout rates by racial/ethnic group changed in relation to one another and in relation to the overall HISD dropout rate over the last 2 years? (7) What percentage of 1988-89 dropouts were previously identified as at-risk students? (8) What were 1988-89 dropout rates by at-risk status? and (9) What is the estimated longitudinal dropout rate for HISD secondary grades (7-12)? A seven-item bibliography is appended. (AF)
