National Center for Education Statistics
This report provides national estimates about dropout prevention services and programs in public school districts. The estimates presented in this report are based on a district survey about dropout prevention services and programs offered by the district or by any of the schools in the district during the 2010-11 school year. For this survey, dropout prevention services and programs were defined as services and programs intended to increase the rate at which students are staying in school, progressing toward graduation, or earning a high school credential. The survey was designed to be completed by all types of districts, including those without high school grades. The survey asked about services and programs that districts may provide to students at various levels, including those in elementary and middle/junior high school, that are designed to support students who are struggling academically or who may be at future risk of dropping out. The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) in the Institute of Education Sciences conducted this Fast Response Survey System (FRSS) survey in fall 2010. FRSS is a survey system designed to collect small amounts of issue-oriented data from a nationally representative sample of districts, schools, or teachers with minimal burden on respondents and within a relatively short period of time. The survey was mailed to 1,200 public school districts in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Appended are: (1) Standard Error Tables; (2) Technical Notes; and (3) Questionnaire. (Contains 25 tables and 6 footnotes.)
