1 Senior Exit Survey Results and Analysis Alief Independent School District May 19 June 15, 2015

2 Overview The Alief ISD Senior Exit Survey asked graduating seniors about their high school experiences and their plans after graduation. Results will be used to better understand how prepared graduating students are for college and/or a career and help high school campuses know how to improve future students experiences. To ensure content validity, K12 Insight partnered with Alief ISD leadership to develop the survey content. Seniors accessed the survey via and public URL, entering their student ID numbers to participate. Parents, students and principals received letters informing them about the survey s purpose and logistics. The survey was open from May 19 to June 15, This report summarizes overall results and breaks them down by high school campus, where appropriate. The results do not reflect random sampling; therefore, they should not be generalized to all graduating seniors. Findings for each item in the report exclude participants who did not answer. In charts and graphs, data labels less than 5% are not shown. 2

32 Key Findings Most graduating seniors plan to attend college next year 45% plan to attend a four-year college or university and 38% plan to attend a community college with the intent of transferring to a four-year college or university. A strong majority of high school seniors (92%) plan to work next year and most of these students (61%) will work part time. Most high school seniors who are attending college next year will attend school locally. Houston Community College was the most popular community college, the University of Houston was the most popular four-year college or university, and the Art Institute in Houston was the most popular trade, technical or art school. 68% of participating seniors submitted a FAFSA, and over a third of those students either started or completed their FAFSA at school. 32

33 Key Findings (Continued) Strong majorities of high school seniors (89-96%) gave favorable responses to questions about the career guidance they received. Most students (58%) visited the counselor at least six times during high school, and 36% visited the counselor 2-5 times. More than one-third said they visited the counselor at least six times during their senior year. A majority of students at all campuses included in the analysis agreed that their high school effectively prepared them for their future. Alief Early College High School received the highest percentage of favorable responses at 95%. Though 10% of participating students said that they do not feel ready to leave high school, closer review of the other explanations indicate some of these students feel emotionally not ready to leave high schools, describing sadness to leave family and/or friends. 33

34 Next Steps Share the survey findings with campus principals and the Board of Trustees. Next year, we will either improve this instrument based on what we learned from this year s administration, or the district may choose the survey from our Catalog of Studies that will allow for benchmark comparisons in the future. 34
