Idaho: High school drop out rate
- A high school drop out is a person who was enrolled in school at some time during the previous school year but wasn’t enrolled at the beginning of the current year. In addition, he or she has not graduated from high school or completed a state- or district-approved educational program. Finally, he or she has not transferred to another school and is not absent due to suspension, illness, or death.
- The high school drop out rate, as reported here, is the proportion of students in a given age range who are drop outs in a given year, according to the definition above. Not all districts and states provide drop out information to the National Center for Education Statistics, which is our source for high school drop out rates. For more detail, please see http://nces.ed.gov/ccd/aboutccd.html.
- High school drop out rates for public school districts in Idaho are shown below. Contact local school district staff if you have questions. For contact information, use the school district locator at http://nces.ed.gov/ccdweb/school/.
- Beginning with the 2002-2003 school year, the National Center of Education Statistics no longer reports data for school districts enrolling fewer than 1,000 students.
