Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to investigate the graduation rates of Riverside County high schools, comparing continuation schools and regular high school settings. The study also investigated the dropout rate in continuation schools and regular high schools. Specifically, this study investigated graduation rates of traditional high school and continuation school; and the dropout ratio of traditional high school and continuation school.

This study investigated the rates of graduation of Riverside County high schools, comparing continuation schools and regular high school settings. The study concluded there was no difference in the graduation rates by school type- traditional, continuation, and alternative schools, using one way analysis of variance. The study also investigated the dropout rate in continuation schools and regular high schools. The study concluded there was no difference in drop-out rates among school type-traditional and alternative school settings during the 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009 school years. For the 2006 school year for that school year could be due to an increasing population. Another factor may be that some students may not have received the amount or appropriate assistance they needed.
