Abstract: The objective of the study was to establish the factors associated with child drop out in government aided primary schools in Rukungiri District. The study focused on both males and females between the ages of 6 and 12 years during the UNHS survey year (2012/1 3). The Analysis was done using frequency distribution and cross tabulation. In the results, Out of the 63 total children aged between 6 and 12 in Rukungiri District that were found in the survey, a total of 9 children were reported to have dropped out of school during the IJNHS survey year 2012/13 without obtaining PLE certificate. The factors associated with child drop out in government primary schools in Rukungiri district are distance to school and family poverty status. The findings indicate the need (i) for government to conduct awareness and sensitization campaigns on importance of family planning to all families to ensure that parents have a number of children that they are able to take care of well; (ii) for parents to participate in development projects within the district and also work hard such that they get out of poverty, (iii) for government to build primary schools in Rukungiri District in each sub county.
