Direct enrollment rates are still far below pre-pandemic levels (58% for the class of 2019 compared to 52% for the class of 2022), but rates have started (or continued) to rebound for some student groups in the high school class of 2022. These data reveal a need for further research and analysis to identify ways to reinforce positive trends and reverse declining/stagnant trends in order to increase direct enrollment rates.
