Fast Fact – September 11, 2020

In 2019, 2 percent of Colorado students in all grades dropped out of school, the lowest dropout rate seen by the state since 2010. Along with the state, many individual districts have seen significant declines in dropout rates over the last decade. Earning a high school diploma is important to well-being in adulthood; without a diploma, young adults face slim odds of finding a job that pays enough to support themselves or their family, making them twice as likely to live in poverty. To find the dropout rate in your district, please visit the KIDS COUNT Data Center.
