Getting Started with a Senior Exit Survey

Most school boards have asked the administration what paths are our seniors pursuing? Wouldn’t it be nice to hand each board member a report documenting how many seniors plan to attend a 4-year college? How many plan to attend a two-year college or vocational school? How many seniors plan to enter the work force either full time or part time immediately? A customized senior exit survey can provide these answers as well how graduates responded to 15-22 customized questions regarding their high school experience and their perception of the education they received.

Were school counselors helpful in the selection of a path to follow after graduation?
Do graduates think they will be able to easily find a job that can support them?
Do students feel rules were enforced consistently and fairly?
Did school provide a safe learning environment?
The responses to these questions and more can be readily available for you to use as you review your strategic plan and school improvement goals.
Getting started has never been easier. You can gather feedback from your entire senior class with an online senior exit survey for $299 per school (regardless of how many seniors you graduate). Enroll by March 31, 2018 for an online survey and receive 7 additional questions FREE. We’ll even throw in an open-ended question or two if you’re interested! Paper surveys are still available for an additional printing fee and the formatting is restricted to the printed survey format.

If your school board appreciates the data and wants to take it to the next level, we also offer graduate follow-up surveys 18 months and 5 years after graduation. Upgrade your program by 07/31/18 and we’ll apply the $299 for the senior exit survey towards the cost of our comprehensive programs.

Perception Data May Hold Key to School Improvement

Who can determine if a student has been harassed or bullied? Your students! Schools too often must focus on test scores, attendance data and discipline data in an effort to demonstrate adequate yearly progress. Rarely is perception data gathered and used as a tool for school improvement. LifeTrack School snapshot surveys have been administered as low as 4th grade through 11th grade. Perceptions regarding safety, technology and harassment, as well as other areas, can also benefit an overall education. When equipped with feedback from students, administrators can hold staff accountable for change. Education is a continually changing process. Feedback can help our schools act versus reacting. Feedback also gives a school board necessary tools for making decisions in the best interest of their districts. Nothing speaks stronger to a community than feedback from graduates. Student feedback can be the ultimate measure of a school’s success! For further information, please go to www.graduate-surveys.com
