This report summarizes a selection of school system characteristics and performance indicators collected since the 1991-92 school year for the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS), North Carolina, and comparable local education agencies (LEAs) in North Carolina. Data are presented in figures to reveal longitudinal trends in the Wake County system and comparisons of Wake County's schools with other LEAs. Per pupil expenditures in the WCPPS were lowest among all comparison LEAs for every year in the 1990s. Student dropout rates in the WCPSS remained the lowest among comparison LEAS throughout the period studied. Student population growth in the WCPSS exceeded that of all comparison LEAs for every year in the 1990s. Overall, Wake County students posted the strongest academic performance among all comparison LEAs, and steady gains were made throughout the 1990s. The report identifies some areas of relative strength and weakness in academic performance for Wake County students. (SLD)
