recognized rating was more difficult for secondary schools because dropout rates and atten dance pose more of a challenge rates are the No 1 area that catches most high schools The dropout rate has to be pretty he said Other factors that you have at higher grade levels are you have more kids and more diversity in your student A school or district also must meet the same TAAS pass and dropout rates
