Abstract

This study examined predictor variables to identify students at-risk for dropping out of high school in a southeastern school district in Virginia. This study involved 14,169 participants of ninth through twelfth grade students from the 2007-2008 school year in a selected urban school division. This quantitative study employed correlation analyses to determine the linear relationship between dropping out of high school and the predictor variables. Logistic regression analysis determined which set of predictor variables best predicted the student outcome. The analysis indicated that years retained, discipline, and attendance were the most significant predictors of high school end status (dropout or graduate).
