Grysho, Kelly Miller
This report presents Arizona dropout statistics for 4 academic years, 1994-98. For each year, dropout rates are reported for grades 7-12 and are based on a calendar year running from the first day of summer recess through the last day of school. Most of the report consists of data tables that provide enrollment and dropout information for individual schools, school districts, and counties, and for the state categorized by grade, gender, and ethnicity. Enrollment and dropout rates are presented separately for grades 9-12 and grades 7-8. At the end of 1997-98, there were 376,675 Arizona students enrolled in grades 7-12, of which over 31,000 were reported as dropouts. The state dropout rate for grades 9-12 for the 4 years ranged from 11.5 to 12.8 percent. Males tended to drop out more frequently than females, and American Indian students had the highest dropout rates, followed by Hispanic students. An introduction includes the dropout data reporting requirement, definitions, and information on transfer documentation. (SV)
