This report presents data on public school dropouts in grade levels 7 and 12 in Texas public middle schools and high schools for 1989-90. The data are presented in the aggregate and by grade, and with projected cross-sectional dropout rates for each of those grades for the next 5 years. The information was provided through the Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS). Section I presents state summaries including summary counts, characteristics of dropouts, dropouts by grade, dropouts by ethnicity, dropouts by reasons given, and with a projection of cross-sectional and longitudinal dropout rates. Section II presents district groups in two tables: one tables shows data for groups of districts with the counts of dropouts, annual rates, and an estimated longitudinal rate; and the other table shows summary counts of dropouts by ethnic group for the same district groups. Section III provides a table of data for each school district in Texas indicating the number of dropouts by ethnic group, the annual dropout rate, and the estimated longitudinal rate. An appendix details PEIMS data standards for reporting dropout student data. In all, there are eight tables and two graphs. (JB)
