This report presents the number of high school completers, the Averaged Freshman Graduation Rate (AFGR), and the dropout data for grades 9-12 for public schools in school year 2009-10. State Education Agencies (SEAs) report annual counts of completers, dropouts, and enrollments to the National Center for Education Statistics' (NCES) Common Core of Data (CCD) nonfiscal survey of public elementary/secondary education as part of the Cooperative Education Statistics System established in section 157 of the Education Sciences Reform Act of 2002, part C and the U. S. Department of Education's ED"Facts" data collection system. Although tables 3 and 7 present data from eight sequential school years, the text presents only comparisons between the 2008-09 and 2009-10 school years. The purpose of this First Look is to introduce new data through the presentation of tables containing descriptive information. Selected findings chosen for this report demonstrate the range of information available on the 2009-10 CCD Dropout and Completer provisional data files. The selected findings do not represent a complete review of all observed differences in the data and are not meant to emphasize any particular issue. Data files and report tables include data for the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and 8 other jurisdictions. However, the findings discussed in this report focus on the reporting states and the District of Columbia. This First Look marks the first publication and the initial data release for 2009-10 CCD dropout and completer data. The data in this report are drawn from the 2009-10 CCD Dropout and Completer provisional data files. Data in these provisional data files have undergone an intensive review and editing process. Any additional revisions will be incorporated in the 2009-10 CCD Dropout and Completer data files to be released in subsequent provisional releases and the final release as warranted. Methodology and Technical Notes are appended. (Contains 8 tables and 3 footnotes.)
