Figures calculated by IDRA from the Texas Education Agency Fall Membership Survey data. IDRA’s 2008-09 attrition study involved the analysis of enrollment figures for public high school students in the ninth grade during 2005-06 school year and enrollment figures for 12th grade students in 2008-09. This period represents the time span when ninth grade students would be enrolled in school prior to graduation. The enrollment data for special school districts (military schools, state schools, and charter schools) were excluded from the analyses since they are likely to have unstable enrollments and/or lack a tax base to support school programs.
