This publication provides a compilation of statistical information covering Pennsylvania high school graduates in public, private and nonpublic schools for the 2002-03 school year. Information is provided on race/ethnicity, gender and planned post-high school activity of graduates, including those who are college-bound. Information is also provided on special populations of the public school graduates: economically disadvantaged, migrant, English language learner and special education. The source of this data is an annual survey of all Pennsylvania public, private and nonpublic schools having a 12th-grade or secondary ungraded enrollment. In the public sector, 596 high schools, 16 comprehensive area vocational-technical schools, 28 charter schools, four consortium-operated alternative high schools and the Scotland School for Veterans Children were surveyed. These public schools had 119,932 graduates. In the private and nonpublic sector, there were 394 high schools with 17,700 graduates. The total number of public, private and nonpublic graduates was 137,632. For the public schools, the data collection used an individual student report via a web-based system, the Electronic Dropout/Graduate Report (EDGR). For the private and nonpublic schools, the data collection continued to be an aggregate report using a paper form. During the 2003 calendar year, 9,216 persons, age 19 or less, took the General Educational Development (GED) test in Pennsylvania. Of those, 6,079 passed the test, thereby qualifying to receive the Commonwealth Secondary School Diploma provided they were at least age 18. Individuals less than 18 years old who pass the GED test receive the diploma when they reach age 18. In 2003, there were 4,335 diplomas issued to 18- and 19-year-old recipients. The following are appended: (1) Public, Private and Nonpublic High School Graduates by Gender and County, 2002-03; (2) Public High School Graduates by Race, Gender and Post-High School Activity, 2002-03; (3) PrThis publication provides a compilation of statistical information covering Pennsylvania high school graduates in public, private and nonpublic schools for the 2002-03 school year.
