Note. A dash (-) indicates data are not reported to protect student anonymity. When the number of dropouts is not reported, the total number of students is presented in such a manner as to provide a general idea of the number of students in the group while maintaining student anonymity. A dot (.) indicates there were no students in the group or, in rare cases, that a reporting anomaly prevented calculation of the rate.
