This report, prepared from information collected from Colorado's public school districts for 64 counties, provides information about public school students grades K through 12. In fall 1991, there were 593,030 students in Colorado's public schools, representing a substantial increase for the second consecutive year, and surpassing the state's previous membership peak in 1972. Native Americans, Asian Americans, Blacks, and Hispanic Americans represented 25.1% of the total student population. The Denver metropolitan area includes 53.9% of the state's total student membership. The graduation rate for the class of 1991 was 78.9%.
