Persistence into Fourth Year (Fall 2012) of Postsecondary Education
We followed this cohort of 2009 RI public high school graduates over the four years after graduation. In Fall 2012, only 50 (12%) of the 408 chronically absent graduates in our cohort who enrolled full-time in RI Public Postsecondary Institutions in Fall 2009 persisted into a fourth year. This compares to 660 (36%) of graduates with low high school absenteeism.
