Dropout percentages for Brunswick County Schools are on the decline.
According to enrollment statistics, the dropout rate for ninth through 12th grade students in 2006-2007 was 5.66 percent, or 213 students. This number is down eight students and .04 percent from 2005-2006.
In the 2006-2007 school year, the district had higher enrollment numbers than the previous year. While the number of students who dropped out is higher in 2006-2007 compared to 2005-2006, the percentage of dropouts is lower because of the higher enrollment.
According to a recent survey, a dropout is classified as someone who “was enrolled in school at some time during the reporting year, was not enrolled on day 20 of the current year, has not graduated from high school or completed a state or district approved educational program.”
The dropout rate may not always be completely accurate, as it accounts for students who left to pursue an adult high school or GED program.
Brunswick County Schools does not receive follow-up data of whether or not those students graduated.
