|NCES 2015015||Trends in High School Dropout and Completion Rates in the United States: 1972-2012
This report updates a series of NCES reports on high school dropout and completion rates that began in 1988. The report draws on an array of nationally representative surveys and administrative datasets to present statistics on high school dropout and completion rates. The report includes national estimates of the percentage of students who drop out in a given 12-month period (event dropout rates), the percentage of young people in a specified age range who are high school dropouts (status dropout rates), and the percentage of young people in a specified age range who hold high school credentials (status completion rates). In addition, the report includes state-level data on event dropout rates and the percentage of students who graduate within four years of starting ninth grade (adjusted cohort graduation rates). Data are presented by a number of characteristics including race/ethnicity, sex, and socioeconomic status.
|NFES 2015158||Forum Guide to Alternative Measures of Socioeconomic Status in Education Data Systems
The Forum Guide to Alternative Measures of Socioeconomic Status in Education Data Systems provides “encyclopedia-type” entries for eight plausible alternative measures of socioeconomic status (SES) to help readers better understand the implications of collecting and interpreting a range of SES-related data in education agencies. Chapter 1 reviews recent changes in how SES data are collected in many education agencies and presents a call to action to the education community. Chapter 2 reviews practical steps an agency can take to adopt new measures. Chapter 3 describes each of the eight alternative measures, including potential benefits, challenges, and limitations of each option.
|NFES 2015157||Forum Guide to College and Career Ready Data
The Forum Guide to College and Career Ready Data examines how data are being used to support CCR initiatives. Chapter 1 presents an overview of college and career readiness. Chapter 2 focuses on five specific uses for data to support CCR programs: fostering individualized learning for students; supporting educators in addressing student-specific needs; guiding CCR programmatic decisions through the use of postsecondary feedback loops; measuring agency progress in meeting CCR accountability and continuous improvement goals; and maximizing career opportunities for all students. Each of the use cases includes policy and program questions to consider, a list of key data needs, useful analytics, suggested feedback to request from data users, and emerging needs related to the data use. Chapter 3 outlines a number of overarching issues for the use of CCR data, and Chapter 4 summarizes key points and emerging needs identified throughout the Guide.

|NCES 2015052||Public-Use Data Files and Documentation (FRSS 106): School Safety and Discipline: 2013–14
This file contains data from a fast-response survey titled "School Safety and Discipline: 2013–14." This survey was designed to provide national estimates on public school safety and discipline for the 2013–14 school year.

Questionnaires and cover letters were mailed to the principal of each sampled school in February 2014. The letter stated the purpose of the study and requested that the questionnaire be completed by the person most knowledgeable about safety and discipline at the school. Respondents were offered options of completing the survey on paper or online. Telephone follow-up for survey nonresponse and data clarification was initiated in March 2014 and completed in July 2014. The weighted response rate was 85 percent.
Respondents reported on specific safety and discipline plans and practices, training for classroom teachers and aides related to school safety and discipline issues, security personnel, frequency of specific discipline problems, and number of incidents of various offenses.
|NCES 2015064||High School Dropouts and Stopouts: Demographic Backgrounds, Academic Experiences, Engagement, and School Characteristics
The high school dropout problem continues to be a serious concern for secondary education in the United States. Some dropouts fail to ever return to school. Others however, do return after extended absences. These returning students, typically referred to as stopouts, may be quite different from dropouts who fail to return. In these Web Tables, the High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS:09) base-year and first follow-up surveys are used to examine both stopouts and dropouts. Current dropouts are those students who left school between 2009 and 2012 and neither were enrolled in school nor had earned a high school diploma or an alternative credential at the time of the first follow-up in spring 2012. Stopouts are those students who had experienced at least one 4-week or longer period of time out of high school between 2009 and 2012 but were enrolled in school at the time of the 2012 first follow-up interview. These Web Tables present information on both groups’ demographic characteristics, academic experiences, school engagement behaviors, and the characteristics of schools they attended in 9th grade. To provide a context for comparison, all tables also include students who did not drop out of school between grades 9 and 11 (referred to as continuous students).
