Latest data for the Estrie region

The Estrie region has known for over 10 years the lowest annuel dropout rate with 19 % in 2012-2013. If you recall, this rate was 30.2% at the beginning of the TECIÉ and the Projet PRÉE. For that school year, including school leavers, nearly one in five young people had left school without a qualification or diploma. Over the last five years, in Estrie, close to 3, 000 young estriens have left school without qualifications or diploma.

 

Results based on the ministry indicators

 
A THREE-YEAR APPROACH TO BREAK THE TREND…

Based on the annual data produced by the ministère de l'Éducation et de l'Enseignement supérieur (MEES), the Projet PRÉE calculates an average rate over three years. This calculation method minimizes the “cohort effect” that causes annual, and at times significant, fluctuations. This three-year approach focuses as much attention on school dropout rate trends as on annual fluctuations.
