Idaho Education Association members recently got an email from IEA President Penni Cyr encouraging them to take a survey about how students decide what to do after high school. A parent survey is available, too. Please consider helping this worthwhile project.
Dear IEA Member,
What to do after high school is a major decision for students in your community. Is there a career they could start right away? Are they interested in the military? Should they go to college – and if they do, which school is right for them?
The Idaho State Board of Education has set an ambitious goal to have 60% of Idaho’s 25-34 year old population attain a degree or certificate by the year 2020. Today, only 36% of Idaho citizens meet that goal.
The IEA is partnering with the project manager to collect information for the College Access Network Grant project to collect information from secondary educators. The following survey seeks to discover what secondary teachers believe is important in helping students decide what to do after they graduate.
The survey also intends to find what might be standing in their way, like the cost of college, or graduation requirements, or even whether students are able to find the information needed to decide what to do next.
Please take a few minutes to help us understand what is influencing students’ decisions about life after high school. Your answers will be completely anonymous. The data collected will be used by the State Board of Education and other education stakeholders as they move forward to reach the 60% goal.
Please choose the survey that best describes you:
Thank you for your assistance with this important project.
