Vermont Public School Dropout and High School Completion Report for the 2004-2005 School Year
Vermont Department of Education
The annual event dropout rate describes the proportion of students who leave school each year without completing a high school program. The event dropout rates for the school year 2004-2005 of 1.68% for grades 7 through 12th and 2.40% for grades 9 through 12th are at the lowest levels in the past ten years. The event completion/graduation rate data for school year 2004-2005 are reported alongside with a longitudinal completion rate for the class of 2005. The event graduation rate represents the number of students enrolled in the senior class who graduate at the end of their senior year. The statewide event graduation rate for school year 04-05 is 94%. The longitudinal completion rate is an attempt to estimate a cohort rate for a class of students and calculate the percentage of students that complete the high school requirements for receiving a diploma or for receiving a certificate of attendance or other certificate of completion, in lieu of a diploma. The statewide longitudinal completion rate for the class of 2005 is 88%. Dropout Reporting Instructions are appended. (Contains 1 figure and 6 tables.)
