Notes
Dropout rates derived from:
*Secondary enrollment reported on the EF-M-35 Year End Report for School Systems/Selected
Private Schools as of June 30 for 1995-96 to 1997-98.
* NOTE: The enrollment used to calculate dropout rates has been changed to Fall Enrollment for 1998-99.
This moves Maine in line with the federal guidelines for reporting dropout rates.
** Dropouts reported on the EF-M-35a Year End Report for School Systems/Selected Private
Schools Part II - Dropouts.
Note: Only private schools with 60% or more publicly funded students are required to
file the EF-M-35 and EF-M-35a reports with the Department of Education. The state-funded schools
were also not required to file these forms.
