Definitions: 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.
