Narrative Description of Indicator

In accordance with the Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) 13A.08.01.07, Maryland defines a dropout rate as the percentage of students dropping out of school in grades 9 through 12 in a single year. The number and percentage of students who leave school for any reason, except death, before graduation or completion of a Maryland approved educational program and who are not known to enroll in another school or state approved program during the current school year. The year is defined as July through June and includes students dropping out over the summer and students dropping out of evening high school and other alternative programs. The dropout rate is computed by dividing the number of dropouts by the total number of students in grades 9 - 12 served by the school. Students who re-enter school during the same school year in which they dropped out of school are not counted as dropouts. The same measure is used for all students, including students with IEPs.

The dropout rate is computed by dividing the number of dropouts by the total number of students in grades 9 through 12 served by schools. Students who re-enter school during the same year in which they dropped out. Maryland uses this measurement for all students.
 
Maryland did not meet the target of 3.03% as set by the Maryland State Board of Education for FFY 2017. The dropout rate is computed by dividing the number of dropouts by the total number of students in grades 9 – 12.  Students who re-enter school during the same year in which they dropped out of school are not counted as dropouts.  Using the MSDE 2017-2018 school year Annual Dropout Rate data, the DEI/SES reports an Annual Dropout Rate of 4.21% (1,282 divided by 30,4423 x 100).
