High school dropout rates by race/ethnicity and gender.
The Colorado dropout rate is an annual rate, reflecting the
percentage of all students enrolled in grades 7-12 who leave school
during a single school year without subsequently attending another
school or educational program. It is calculated by dividing the
number of dropouts by a membership base which includes all students who
were in membership any time during the year. In accordance with a
1993 legislative mandate, beginning with the 1993-94 school year, the
dropout rate calculation excludes expelled students.
