Dropout Reduction over 5 years in Colorado

The state of Colorado has amazingly reduced its raw annual dropout numbers by 29% from 18,031 to 12,744 over the five year period from school years 2005-2006 to 2010-2011.  This is right on track with addressing previous Governor Bill Ritter’s call to action in 2005 for the state to reduce dropout numbers by 50% in a 10 year period (by the end of the 15-16 school year).

For the same 5 year period, some of the school districts we have been working with have made even greater strides in reducing their dropout numbers.

  • Aurora Public Schools – 30% reduction in the number of dropouts from 1706 to 1192
  • Denver Public Schools – 43% reduction in the number of dropouts from 4017 to 2292
  • Englewood Schools – 48% reduction in the number of dropouts from 266 to 137
  • Boulder Valley Schools – 58% reduction in the number of dropouts from 282 to 119
