About this data:
E3 Alliance relies primarily on data from the University of Texas Education Research Center (ERC). This data allows for a longitudinal understanding of dropouts and attrition based on where and when a student attends high school. This data pertains to high school students who were enrolled within the state of Texas for any grades 9-12, excluding students who left the Texas public education system for reasons other than dropping out.
Following are items to note:
The year of the data represents the year of high school graduation. A student is defined as having dropped out if the student did not return to public school in the fall following the expected graduation date, was not expelled, and did not: graduate, receive a GED, enroll in higher education, or die. There is a delay in data availability due to state approval within the ERC and analysis time. As such, if you choose to explore data from Central Texas, the graphs below present dropout data in the most recent available year in Texas schools.
