FOOTNOTE: In Florida, a dropout is defined as a student who withdraws from school without transferring to another school, home education program, or adult education program. Reasons can include voluntary withdrawal from school prior to graduation (e.g., after passing the age of compulsory school attendance); failure to meet attendance requirements due to excessive absenteeism; discontinuance of attendance with whereabouts unknown; failure to enter/attend school as expected after having previously registered; and certain other reasons. Year indicated is end of school term. Florida total includes special schools. The reported dropout rate tracks 9-12 grade public school students in a single year. When the cohort is fewer than ten students the value is blank or NA.
